About Janet Bednarczyk
Janet is always happiest when surrounded by plants and colours. Beginning with hand embroidery and knitting at an early age, her appreciation of plants continued as a constant throughout life complimenting her scientific,research career as a physiotherapist, instructor and healer.
Early explorations of texture and pattern in weaving and knitting developed into layered textiles made from white, natural fabrics coloured with plant based dyes and mordants. Janet uses no commercially dyed fabrics in any of her art work. Pieces are often embllished with hand embroidery to repeat the design rhythms. The result is layered curved art works celebrating the natural forms of flowers and plants.
