I am a mixed-media artist, currently working on collage art. I like to experiment with different techniques. Although not a quilter (yet), I do get ideas from Quilting Arts Magazine. After practicing law for many years, I returned to school once again and obtained an AFA degree from a community college (Associate of FIne Arts). My area of emphasis was printmaking. I think earth tones are beautiful, so I am always seeking ways to obtain a lot of texture in my work as a balance to the lack of bright color. Lately, however, I have used more color, keeping within an analagous color family. Although most of my work is abstract, it has content taken from my life and my surroundings. I am married and have two children and four grandsons (ages 6 months to 9 years). My work is in the online gallery: http://ArtsThatWork.com. My blog is: http://JaniceLEickhorst.blogspot.com.
