It is hard to pin a label on Janet Haigh - applied artist, hand stitcher, textile historian, speaker in the language of flowers - all these are true, and more. Janet is arguably best known for her body of work “Flora” - a lifetime of stitching that examines and draws inspiration from a wealth of subjects: 17th century embroidery techniques, Indian stitching, the hidden meanings in everyday flowers and the psychology of growing giant vegetables! She effortlessly combines the contemporary and the historic - in terms of methods and techniques, and in her subject matter. There is a subversive subtext in Haigh’s work that somehow embodies the lives of women throughout history, and still speaks to those themes today. Combine that with a wicked sense of humour and you have “Flowers for Our Times”. Janet’s unique works take years to create and are impossible to put a price on. However, this year for the first time, high quality limited edition giclée prints have been made available - a rare opportunity to purchase a beautiful piece of art and a piece of art textile history.
