University of the Creative Arts

View Showcase

Janice has just completed an MA in Textiles at the University of the Creative Arts in Farnham.

Due to COVID restrictions, her graduate showcase exhibition is only available online.

Touching Absence - Artist's Statement

My work explores the effects of living with someone who has been diagnosed with Parkinson's disease. It primarily deals with how ways of communicating the absences felt when communication has become difficult because of cognitive and reasoning issues. I have portrayed the absences with the use of colour and stitch and touch.

Renwich Gallery

In 2017 Janice contributed top a large textile installation called Ai No Keshiki - Indigo Views. The exhibition was created by Norbert Herber and Rowland Ricketts in conjunction with Awa Indigo Art Project of Tokushima Prefecture in Japan.

Janice has sent a piece of indigo dyed cloth which she exposed to light on a window sill for several months and then returned to Tokushima to become part of the whole work. Watch the installation video on YouTube.

The installation will form part of the Forces of Nature Exhibition at the Renwick Gallery in Washington, DC.
