Jan Miller

Profile

Jan Millers textile art begins and ends with a collection researching old and creating new. It is a circular process of making and thinking informed by her background in science and domestic sewing: experience and memory, method and order, repetition and re-use. Small installations hold the finished narrative.

Jan Millers textile art begins and ends with a collection researching old and creating new. Practical sampling stimulates thinking and further making. It is a circular process informed by her background in science and a family history of domestic sewing. Layers of skills passed on and retained: experience and memory, method and order, repetition and re-use. Jan works with discarded fabrics and papers often offcuts from her previous work. Material is manipulated and folded; natural dyes, inks and powders deepen the marks left by creases and incisions; printing and handstitch accentuate detail. Small installations hold the finished narrative.
