Artlandish Art and Design
Jane Cavanough Artlandish Art and Design produces site specific public art that is a union of both classic and contemporary design, interactive, low maintenance with long lasting beauty.
Director Jane Cavanough has degrees in both Landscape Architecture and Visual Arts. She is the recipient of a Churchill Fellowship, and has played an integral design role in winning both an international and invitational competitions.
Jane works both soley and in design teams for local and state government, developers such as Urban Growth NSW, statutory bodies such as Centennial Parklands as well as Landscape Architecture and Architecture firms, to develop each project from concept through to documentation. Artworks are fabricated by a dedicated group of specialist artisan fabricators and bespoke manufacturers from a brand palette of materials including glass, LED lighting, forged, stainless and mild steel, copper, bronze, brass, cast concrete, stone, timber, mist and water.
Her strength is creating artworks that have a strong relationship to the site in urban, architectural and landscape settings. Passionate about the relationship between people, sculpture and landscape, the epicentre of Jane’s artwork is interpreting the environmental and cultural aspects of each project site.
To date, Jane has supplied artworks for playgrounds, placemaking, wayfinding, urban features and memorials with budgets ranging from $30 000 to $3 million.

Jane Cavanough has delivered beautiful site-specific public artworks suited to their location, function and place. Jane has an understanding of the opportunities and constraints of commissioning and managing public art in the municipal environment, and she creates works purposing materials suitable for long-term placement that show sensitivity to the subject, respectful and interesting story-telling, and understanding of placement within a park/ playground. A key aspect of Jane’s success is her ability to listen to her client and willingness to respond to suggestion and direction.

Jane Cavanough’s vast experience in public art made her a delight to work with. From the concept design during the EOI phase, to the finished piece of art, Jane has been the ultimate professional. Despite some internal challenges and changes, Jane took it all in her stride and worked with us to produce a very successful outcome at 98 Auburn Street. We commend Jane to you and trust that you will enjoy working with her, as we did.
