On May 23rd I drove with a friend to the Horsham Quilters Guild day to listen to a talk by Jan Beany, one of the two artists known as Double Trouble. These two artists have over 20 books to their credit and travel the world to teach various textile techniques. i have had the pleasure of taking a couple of courses from her business partner, Jean Littlejohn and enjoyed them thoroughly . This was the reason I wanted to hear from Jan.
She showed her work over the years and talked of the way she does her art. She emphasised using her journal and really looking at things before dealving in. These wise words can apply to any typed of art. Her journals were lovely and colourful as can be seen here.
