Since graduating from Winchester School of Art BA(Hons) Textiles, Janet has worked in the field of art and design. Recently during lockdown, she found it comforting to hand tuft a few rugs between painting. She describes how the contrast between playing with paint and wool fed each other and created freedom; “I don’t fully understand where these designs have come from, but they have opened a new place of discovery. I love the idea of them being textile wall art”.
Some of these hand tufted rugs and her original paintings have been small batch high quality printed into textiles for your own home, including cushions and lampshades which are available to purchase here.
