ABOUT JADE CAVE
My passion for art has always been with me since childhood, I was always ‘creating’ and I followed that path into fashion and design where my skills grew and my passion too. My work started getting noticed when I was still in fashion college – where I was hired to create designs for various UK retail chains, while still ‘technically’ a student.
I became a licensed therapist in the UK, working with young adults and adolescents. Art and therapy are both ‘from the heart and mind’ and I don’t believe it’s possible to separate them.
I have always been a world-traveler, and on a trip to America I fell in love with the country. Living in America has provided endless inspiration for my art, which I’m pleased has gained a lot of attention from U.S audiences, too. I want my art to have meaning, to connect with concepts from my background in therapy and stay relevant to our times and historical moments. I use words to create images. I like to use inspirational speeches and quotes from past and present moments.
“Art is everywhere. Without it, our planet would simply not exist. Art began with the creation of our world, to the creation of life, and to the creation through life.
Jade Cave, Photography
I have always loved being around nature and getting lost in the wild, I love the beauty of our planet! Growing up I always loved taking pictures and being able to capture moments on film. I decided to take up photography professionally in 2020, because I wanted to share my vision through my photographs. I particularly love capturing the expressions of wildlife close-up and the movement of nature. In 2021 I moved from California to Florida where I instantly fell in love with the beauty of the scenery: The everglades became my tranquility, a place of calm and wonder and I wanted to learn more about this incredibly special and unique place on earth. In 1947 the everglades national park opened, thanks to Margery Stoneman Douglas' vision and her drive to protect this truly wonderful place. As she said, “there are no other Everglades in the world”. My signed and numbered photographs are limited editions: Each photograph is limited to 50 signed prints, only.
