Hi, I’m Janie.  As a textile designer, I’m constantly inspired by color, pattern and texture in the world around me. I earned an MFA in Textile Design from the Rhode Island School of Design in 2006 and a BFA in Fiber and Material Studies from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 2002. I’ve worked in the Textile Industry for 12 years, specializing in wovens and prints for contract and residential markets. I currently live in Durham, North Carolina, where I work as a freelance textile designer and part -time Instructor at NCSU.
