After a Convent School education, Truda Lane studied at Ealing College of Art and then the Slade with Lucian Freud, Euan Uglow and Michael Andrews. Here she excelled and was awarded the first prize for both figure and landscape drawing by Sir William Coldsteam.

Truda was awarded a post graduate scholarship for extended study in architecture at the Slade.

Between 1954 - 1960 Truda worked in the Heralds office at the Royal College of Arms preparing facsimiles of grants of arms and taught in Lancashire and Yorkshire.

In 1958 she married John Lane, a painter & writer, whom she had met at the Slade. The couple moved to Yorkshire and lived on the North Yorkshire moors whose wildness left a great impression on her. Over the years Truda and John had four sons and in 1965 moved to a very different kind of countryside – the valley of the River Torridge in North Devon, a place which has never ceased to delight. But alongside all these moves and responsibilities Truda has continued to draw whenever and wherever possible, and is still part of her everyday practice.
