Janet came to textile art about 2008, but she has long been fascinated by the colour and texture of fabric, yarn and thread and amassed quite a collection over the years. From sewing clothes she graduated to making quilts and then to textile art.
Her work is inspired by geometry, nature, dreams and the work of others. Her quilts usually involve solving a geometric problem, while her wall hangings are primarily free-form pieced using recycled ties, velours and silks. Each piece is a learning experience.
