Born in 1967, Jane Hyslop trained at the Edinburgh College of Art between 1985 and 1989. Her work has been featured in solo exhibitions across Scotland and in group exhibitions internationally, including Edinburgh, London, Selkirk, Amsterdam, Boston and Slovenia. Her work is also featured in various private collections, including the Royal Scottish Academy, the Tate Gallery, the National Gallery of Scotland, the Korean Ministry of Culture and the Contemporary Art Society, London. Her numerous awards include the Elizabeth Greenshields Award (1990), the Latimer Award from the Royal Scottish Academy (1997) and the Birgit Skiold Memorial Trust Award (2006). She currently teaches at the Edinburgh College of Art.

Hyslop’s work focuses on the industrial decline of Midlothian, documenting the changes to the landscape and the transformation of local flora and fauna as the mining, rail and other man-made industries fall into ruin and the land begins to regenerate, examining the relationship between human activity and nature’s resilience.
