Janie uses an eclectic mix of textiles and fibre materials to create one off textile artworks. The soul of the creature emerges as Janie fabricates a 3D soft sculpture piece, revealing the particular quirky essence of that creature’s spirit. Materials are bought, found and upcycled, similar to the process of creating a collage or a mosaic. Lengths of fabrics are block and screen printed by hand, sculpted cushions, rows of flags, hand painted silks and funky creatures can all be seen at exhibitions and craft fairs.
Contact Janie if you would like further info on the textile artworks or a specially commissioned piece.
“Janie does more than create art, she creates life. I would not be surprised to discover that the animals she creates, fly and dance together at night when everyone is sleeping.”
