Janelle Barnes

I am a mixed media artist living in the South West of Western Australia not far from the town of Donnybrook. 

My background is in textiles, growing up with my Mother and older Sister as dress makers. My B.A major was in textiles. 

I print on natural fibres with Lino blocks that are inspired by native flora. My paintings are acrylics on canvas and board, with other media such as pencil and pastel being added. Collage is another medium used. I produce hand built pottery and I also work with mosaics making garden art. 

My art life is about creating a whole world. Art is life-life is art. Ceramics, textiles, table wear, clothing, painting, cooking and mosaics. Very fortunate growing up in a household where dressing the table, making our own clothes and cooking with fresh and available produce was the norm. 

I love living in a beautiful environment such as our Preston valley which offers me abundant produce and inspiration to work with.
