Jane presented two indoor exhibitions of her work made in Taiwan:  an exhibition of her "Taiwan Site Maps" at the Suho Paper Museum and also an exhibition of her "Taipei Site Maps" at the American Institute in Taiwan Cultural Center, Taipei.  Jane also created an outdoor environmental art installation with public participation  at Treasure Hill in Taipei .  She also curated an exhibition of works by Taiwanese and Chinese contemporary artists using handmade paper to be shown in the United States. Jane has also conducted workshops in Taiwan, made lectures at universities and other institutions, and taught papermaking at schools and museums as well as exchanging ideas with other artists. During the first six months in Taiwan Jane has traveled to Shanghai May 8-12, 2004, to visit a papermaking factory and meet other artists who are using paper.
