Jane Clive

It was in the costume painting department at the Royal Opera house that Jane developed a passion for the transformation of costumes. Learning techniques such as the use of ageing processes, nuance of colour, texture and print. Jane set up her own costume painting studio in London. Then worked on many stage productions such as ムCatsメ and ムPhantom of the Operaメ. Then films including ム The French Lieutenantメs Woman ム and Kenneth Branaghメs ムHenry V ム. Janeメs collaboration with Oscar-winning costume designers James Acheson and Colleen Atwood, led to her working almost exclusively in film. She went on to create costume and textile effects for a diverse range of productions such as ムFrankensteinメ. ムLittle Buddhaメ. ムMan in the Iron Maskメ and ムSleepy Hollowメ. Responding to specific briefs, she invented printing techniques. These imitated lavish embroidery, reptilian surfaces or reduce fabric to a threadbare state.
