about Jan

Translating my background in painting to clothing is an exciting challenge. I follow in the tradition of Barbara de Jounge and the Japanese esthetic.

Using the simple materials of felted wool and shibori techniques, I am unfolding as the wool contracts. The sewing machine, thread, and yarn have many possibilities.

My favorite quote is by the artist Francis Picabia: "your head is round so your thinking can change direction". This flexibility in attitude keeps life interesting and renewing.
