We are thrilled to feature “Red Ribbon,” a classic and endearing painting by the multi-talented actor and artist Jane Seymour, as our 2019 Summer Front Cover!
A multiple Emmy and Golden Globe winner, recipient of the Officer of the British Empire (OBE) bestowed upon her by Queen Elizabeth II at Buckingham Palace, Jane Seymour has proven her talents in virtually all media, the Broadway stage, motion pictures and television. As iconic star of the beloved TV series “Dr. Quinn: Medicine Woman,” she became a role model to young women and girls throughout the world with her inspiring rendition of a woman who can courageously dare, achieve and improve anything a man can do. With her customary practice of leading by achieving, she has earned spectacular success in the worlds of art, design and corporate entrepreneurship. With her Open Hearts line of jewelry and many successful enterprises, she has taken the Jane Seymour brand to listing in the top 100 of Licensing Global Magazine’s world’s top brands, something no other actor has accomplished. In the process, her love of art and color has led to her great success as a painter in watercolors and oils, and as a designer of products from botanicals to furniture.
Seymour has reached success with a career encompassing international movie stardom with such lasting films as "Somewhere in Time" and "Live and Let Die", Broadway and London stage acclaim, and television achievements in award winning performances in “War and Remembrance” and “East of Eden.” Awarded a Golden Globe for her role as “Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman,” Seymour made history with her six-season series, blazing a trail for family-worthy programming to return to television.
In early 2008, Seymour launched one of her most successful brands to date, a jewelry collection called "Open Hearts by Jane Seymour". Inspired by Seymour’s original paintings of two hearts connected, open at either end, the exclusive designs symbolize that love has no boundaries and flows unconditionally. It has become a universal symbol for giving and receiving love, and to date has become the most successful line of jewelry currently on the market.
In 2009 Seymour’s Open Hearts, the first book in a series of four, was published. Open Hearts reflects life’s joys and heartaches and symbolizes that only when you can love yourself and keep your heart open are you able to give and receive love. Subsequent books in the series were Among Angels, 2010, Open Hearts Family, 2012 and most recently The Wave, 2014. Inspired by the Open Hearts philosophy, The Road Ahead, 2017 was published.
Seymour released her book, “Making Yourself at Home”, a style book featuring home and lifestyle tips in 2007. Seymour has also authored an autobiographical book, “Remarkable Changes”, a series of successful children’s books titled “This One and That One”, and “Two at a Time: A Journey through Twin Pregnancy and Birth”.
That same year Seymour released a collection of fine art Open Heart bronze sculptures: The Open-Heart Icon and the Single Open-Heart designs. To further illustrate the artist’s commitment to the Open Hearts philosophy, the Open-Heart Icon Monumental fine art sculpture was born in 2012. The first example of the 7-foot bronze casting was installed in Seymour’s oceanside garden. The second Open Heart Icon Monumental sculpture was unveiled at the 2nd Open Hearts Foundation Gala in 2012, and has since been installed outdoors in Akron, OH. The third sculpture in sandstone was unveiled in Calgary, Alberta in the Fall of 2016. The first-ever monumental-sized Single Open-Heart sculpture was unveiled in the lobby of the noted cardiac center, Centra Care, in St. Cloud, MN in 2017. In January of this year, the City of Bradenton, FL unveiled the artist’s newest Open-Heart Icon Monumental bronze sculpture on their Riverwalk along the Manatee River.
Seymour is a prominent spokesperson for Crepe Erase, one of the leading Guthy Renker brands in the skincare space.

In recent years, Seymour and her art company, Coral Canyon Publishing, have partnered with Fotiou Frames, a luxury international moulding manufacturer, to launch the JS Moulding Line to offer a wide selection of beautiful and elegant designs to quality framers nationwide to great success.
