Jan Waller's Profile
I am a feltmaker, painter, sketchbooker, fiddler with materials.
I started out thinking I was going to be a sculptor, became an art teacher and then in 2004 I learnt to felt with Gillian Harris and I have never looked back.
Life has taken me to Australia, where I learnt so much about fibre and my felting just exploded!
Now I am living in Michigan USA and my felting has just taken some major leaps. My main love is to felt images of women, but I am also drawn to nature. I am influenced by life experiences, folk and fairy stories, Tim Burton, Fauvism, and traditional crafts and artists.
I exhibit locally where I live and this year (2012) I was an exhibitor in ArtPrize.
I occasionally blog on www.lovemakethink.com
I am an active Facebooker www.facebook.com/JanWallerFeltedArt…
