Janis Kanter is a textile artist.
 

Years ago I was a textile weaver …

then came family, work, life, and my creative endeavors were pushed to the side. But that itch to create never leaves.

Not wanting to return to weaving, and realizing I’d lugged around a sewing machine for 25 years that I STILL didn’t know how to turn on — let alone thread! — it was time to take a 101 sewing class.

What fun! I was flying like superman … faster than a speeding bullet! This process allowed way more flexibility than weaving. The method allowed things to be unplanned, work deconstructed and the reconstructed. Suddenly my overall artistic practice expanded as wide as a horizon across the ocean.

So much more to come, but for now hope you enjoy what you see.
