Jan Reid loves pattern and the rhythm and repetition within nature. This can find a voice in collage and mixed media with monoprinted or stamped backgrounds overlaid with layers of stitched organza. Her workshops reflect her inspirations found in the natural world but also, with her background in Geography, in the rich cultural heritage found in countries like India. The workshops can vary from atmospheric sheer landscapes to felted textured surfaces to kantha stitched collages.
Jan is a member of Edge – textile artists Scotland and the Dundee based textile art group, Kalimkari. She is also a member of the mixed media group Fusation.
