About Art Classes
Join Janice in a hands on introduction to some of the techniques she uses to create her textile artwork. During the class you will create your own 8 x 11 inch (20 x 25 cm) art quilt based on Janice’s original design, Silence, which symbolizes the stillness of mind we seek to develop with meditation.
Janice is Canadian but lived in Singapore from 1992 to 2011, when she retired and moved to Koh Samui. Her many years living in a predominantly Chinese culture have influenced her artwork where Chinese calligraphy and Buddhist symbolism are occasionally seen.
Janice’s art education includes a Diploma in Fiber Arts from Canada and a City and Guilds Certificate in Creative Quilting from the United Kingdom.
Her present body of work consists of detailed images of Asia created in fabric, paint and stitch. Each piece requires 150 to 250 hours of work to complete.
Janice’s artwork has been exhibited in England, France, Germany, the Netherlands, Canada and the United States.

"Rust on a metal door latch, moss on a concrete wall, visible signs of deterioration and collapse; all these images inspire me. I love the changes that occur on surfaces with the passage of time. The accumulated patina adds to the texture, beauty and interest of a surface and tells us a story if we stop long enough to see it.
Working from my large collection of Asian photos, I create representational textile art quilts that attempt to convey a sense of place and time ”
