Where form meets function

Jane McAdam Freud, great grandaughter of Sigmund Freud, talks about her early encounters with art. As a child she drew as a way of connecting with her father. A towering figure who would influence and inspire her work, Lucien Freud was also a shadow she work hard to remove herself from. A talented multi-media artist, making her own way under the name Jane McAdam was essential for both her career and her belief in her own abilities. However her striking resemblance to her father, ‘a God’ as she describes, and the multiple references to him in her own work seem to suggest that those ties still remain strong.
