Jane Gotts was born in Worcestershire, England and attended the Cheltenham College of Art and Design in Gloucestershire, England. Gotts began her working life in animation in Bristol, and then London, and was eventually shipped out to Los Angeles to work at DreamWorks. She worked in various guises as head of the color model department, head of 2d-cg, and compositing supervisor.
Gotts is currently exploring portraiture, and its ability to challenge a viewer's perceptions of its subjects. Her recent works juxtapose the often-overlooked denizens of modern urban society with the courtly trappings, poses and techniques seen in traditional, centuries-old portraits of royalty and the clergy.
