Instructor Name:
Barbara Janson
Instructor Bio:
Come meet our newest Fiber Artist, Barbara Janson, at a trunk show presentation featuring her specialty: Landscape Quilting. The complexity and beauty of Barbara's work reflects the expense of her heart and heritage. Raised in Minnesota, Barb inherited a love of the outdoors from her father and sewing skills from her mother, a professional seamstress. As an award winning fiber artist and competitive quilter, Barb applies the rules of good design and the painterly skills she learned while earning her Bachelors of Fine Arts to her favorite hard edged medium-Fabric.
Inspired by nature and history, Barb Janson's original impressionistic landscapes are created using bits of appliqued batiks and other cotton fabrics, occasionally enhanced with machine and hand embroidery, thread painting, and ink.
Barb began teaching the Art of Landscape Quilting in 2005 and continues to share her knowledge and experience in informative lectures and classes throughout the country, inspiring her students to create from the heart.

Barb's quoted landscapes from a painter?s perspective often reflect the north woods of her childhood, the European countryside of her ancestors, and the beauty of her beloved Sonoran Desert and her Arizona home.
