Artist's Profile

Janet Jopson

I studied at Harrow Art School from the age of sixteen, when I discovered an enthusiasm for the printing processes, particularly Batik and Lino Cut. I continued this specialism at the University of London. I have shown this work in individual and shared exhibitions in the South East, Somerset and Devon where I now live.
I have worked on large murals in the community and with youth groups to produce public murals, exhibitions and installations and I have been a teacher of Art for many years.
I have worked with the Westward Ho! Youth Theatre Group to produce scenery for their productions.

I offer Batik or Lino-cut printing workshops at my studio in Westward Ho! Please contact me through the information below, for more details of the courses.
I am available to give a one hour presentation to groups on the fascinating process of Batik.

Artist's Statement

I love working with the fluid and flowing techniques of Batik and Lino-cut Printmaking, which both explore line, colour and texture. My themes have been local land and seascapes, and natural elements, inspired by my surroundings.
My most recent work explores movement and abstraction and can combine these techniques with paint.
