Jacquelyn E. Lane
I write from a global perspective on nature and spirituality, bending the boundaries of our perception, inviting us to rethink our understanding of reality.
My major work is The Children of Gaia, a novel set in the forests of the world that marries ecology with the intelligence of nature traditionally called the ‘deva kingdom’. Written for adults and older teens it is embellished with 178 of my fine art illustrations.
I also illustrated Julie Leibrich’s delightful children’s story, Once in a Blue Moon (Random House NZ, 1995). I edited the autobiography of New Zealand’s first Russian priest, Alexey – glimpses of an extraordinary life. Recently I released a non-fiction trilogy, This World of Echoes – A Divine Guide to Being Human, available in print and e-book formats.
I grew up in Wellington and Western Samoa, studied at Victoria and Massey Universities graduating BA (Education). For many years I was an exhibiting member of the NZ Academy of Fine Arts. I have lived in several countries and travelled extensively, settling south of Nelson in 2010. I post regular blogs and run workshops on art and the core themes of my books.
