Monday Zoom Meetings
1st February: Guest Speaker
Janet Haines FIPF ARPS GPSA EFIAP DPAGB with her talk 'Inside my Head'
Her work is multi layered and textured with a dreamlike quality. You can find more of her work on her website http://www.jayhaines.co.uk/
Here is what Janet says as an introduction to this talk:
This is an increasingly popular talk during which I show several of my successful panels of work as well as individual works. In the first half of the session I show you all my own prints and tell you why I selected different papers for them. Most of my work in this talk can be best described as photographic art. Just about all of them are montage or at the very least using textures. So in the second half we switch to projection and I deconstruct some of my images seen in the first half and talk about how I have constructed them. I am happy to share my 'secrets' and techniques.
