Pinheiro also worked in oil and created block prints. Over 100 Pinheiro paintings reside in the collection of the Theodore Payne Foundation for Wildflowers and Native Plants. Jane S. Pinheiro was instrumental in establishing at least eight wildflower and wildlife santuaries in Antelope Valley, including Saddleback Butte State Park and Antelope Valley California Poppy Reserve State Natural Reserve.
