Janet Bolton



This is my favourite book from our library. I think I borrow it more than anyone else. It is at my house more than at the library! I guess I really want to own it and one day I will buy it. I never get tired of looking at Janet's work. It has such a feeling about it. I would love to produce work like that. Not work that neccessarily looks like her work (although her stuff is fantastic!), but work that has that feeling about it. It is so very much about the fabric and also memories. I can feel that she creates from memories. When I look at her pictures I not only can feel her memories, but it stirs memories I have of similar experiences I have had.

Okay, I'll admit it. When I grow up I want to be Janet Bolton!

You can't be Janet because I'm going to be Janet! ;O) I look at her books all the time, too! Isn't she the best?!
