Jane Cofer, Principle for Art Matters LLC, grew up in Atlanta, Georgia. An early passion for photography directed her to The Rhode Island School of Design where she graduated in 1989 with a BFA in photography. For the next ten years she lived in New York City and worked for artists Robert Longo and Gretchen Bender, which eventually led to a career as a freelance producer of television commercials. In 1999, she moved back to Atlanta and worked at the High Museum of Art as the Rights and Reproduction Coordinator on the Elton John, Chorus of Light exhibition catalogue.

Working with the High Museum of Art on Elton John’s collection inspired Ms. Cofer to form Art Matters LLC, an art collection management company, which serves to consult, catalogue and appraise art for private collectors and corporations. Since its inception in 2000, Art Matters has worked to evaluate numerous collections and individual works of art for corporate and institutional clients as well as many private collectors for insurance or IRS related purposes. She is a current board member of Atlanta Celebrates Photography and is active in the High Museum of Art’s Circles Salon. She has served as a board member for The Museum of Contemporary Art of Georgia (MOCA GA) in Atlanta, GA and the Hambidge Center in Rabun Gap, GA
