Jane Grealy is an Australian artist based in Queensland.

Grealy has enjoyed a successful career as an architectural illustrator since 1979, whose work is based on observation of both existing and imagined buildings, landscapes and spaces. Although her transition to the art world came much later, Grealy’s architectural training has allowed her to hone technical skills in perspective and art media, while providing a liberating outlet for her creative pursuits.

Her current focus is on the natural environment and the balance with the built environment. In the “River” watercolour series, building frames and surveyor’s marks suggest how future construction might be positioned on a pristine river such as the Ord River in WA, contrasting it with the more urbanized and industrial Brisbane River in Qld. These works examine the delicate balance of what we wish for and what we have now, drawing attention to environment that may one day be under threat from urbanization and advancing industry.

Since 2015, Grealy has gone on to feature as a finalist and prize winner for many national and international prizes, most recently winning the Dobell Drawing Prize #23 in 2023.

Her work is represented in the Museum of Brisbane Collection, Jacaranda Acquisitive Drawing Award Collection, the Kedumba Collection of Australian drawings, National Art School, and in a number of private collections in Australia
