Lane’s work of the early 1990s explored the traces and imprints people leave behind, such as footprints, fingerprints and wax casts of body parts. She later produced a series of digitally-altered photographs of wild animals combined with domestic interiors. In 2003, Lane launched the design company ‘Showroom Dummies’. Lane was born in Penzance and studied at Bristol Polytechnic and Goldsmiths College, London. While at Goldsmiths she co-curated the influential ‘Freeze’ exhibition with Damien Hirst, and is often associated with the Young British Artists group.
