. As I followed my mouse from some beautiful, intriguing photos over to Jane Churchill's website, I knew I' d found THE Set Designer to fit in this month's magazine. Not only were her designs creative, textured and painterly, but she had a wide range of expressions as an artist: she took set designing in all directions - going large with community groups, installations for local businesses and, I learned, recent explorations into immersive theatrical happenings; then going within and very small, building multi-media and found object boxes each telling an enthralling story. In her latest work, she seems to be combining all of the above. Interview by Cindy Marks ge Jane's bio states that she fell in love with theatre at age seventeen. In talking with her, you discover it was likely much earlier, nurtured as she built her own tiny worlds of stables for her model horses. Made from cardboard boxes, she took these childhood building blocks to a new level, adding tiny turning taps and bolts on her doors and miniature rosettes for the horses. In addition to these "sets" she was a natural collaborator, starting up a Monday club of art workshops at the age of eight. "I think I have always helped release people's creativity. It's been part of my own deep inner process - learning how to release my own creativity to expanded states of freedom."
