ABOUT JANICE

​Born and raised on Vancouver Island, I now make Atlin in Northwestern British Columbia home.  After our big move north I was able to set up a studio.  

 

All my pieces are handmade in the studio.  I love working with silver, but also use copper and gold nuggets sourced from the local placer miners who work our famous Atlin gold fields.  

​Each piece of metal brings with it a unique character all of its own, always dictating the process, and at times stopping it completely, demanding that I listen to what it has to say.   

Creativity, like all good things grows as it is nurtured.  Always the patient teacher, it nudges and encourages me forward, even when I protest. 

There such a vulnerability in sharing art.  I suppose baring one's soul to the world builds character and confidence, which is a good thing, at least that's what I keep telling my self.  

I am grateful that art is, by its very nature forgiving, allowing me carry on with this amazing journey.  Somewhere in the midst of it all I have left bits of my simple, grateful and humble soul in each piece.  I only regret that I didn't have the guts to have embarked on this journey earlier.
