Janis began learning about and enjoying the art of weaving at a young age when she was given a little “Weave It” loom with jersey loops. Her love of fiber, texture and colour continued as she learned sewing, knitting, crocheting and tatting skills. Her Bachelor of Science Degree in Home Economics was dotted with education about textiles and fabrication of patterns and garments.
Janis formally studied weaving at Holland College School of Visual Arts, Charlottetown, PEI. After her teaching career she began working full time in her home studio. She works with thread-painted warps of colour and texture to achieve one-of-a-kind designs to be enjoyed as sofa blankets, rugs, table runners and wall hangings. Items may be custom designed to suit colour scheme and decor.
