Hi Janis, thanks for friending me. Really love the texture and richness of your burnt book. Conflagrations I think the title was. Looking forward to seeing more of your work. Regards, Colleen

Hi Janis,  thanks for your response to my "like".  I like the printerly, earthy quality of some of your works and found your "Detention..." work especially poignant.

I was informed of your residency at the Sidney Nolan trust in the UK. Unfortunatly I can't take part in your workshop as I will be there printing for a local artist. However I look forward to meeting you.
