Impressions In Cloth

Welcome to Impressions In Cloth by Barb Janson


The complexity and beauty of Barbara Janson’s work reflects the essence of her heart and her heritage.   

Inspired  by nature, Barb’s impressionistic landscapes illustrate the Northwoods of her childhood,  the European country side of her ancestors and the Sonoran desert of her Arizona home.  

Each piece is an original.  Barb says- “I try to capture a moment in time: personal moments with universal understanding.” Visit the wonderful gallery, “Impressions”, to experience landscapes from a quilter’s perspective. 

Her love of history and a deep respect for ancient cultures, spawned  Barb’s first series as an art quilter in 2004.
Today, Barb is an award-winning fiber artist with works in private collections from Arizona to Australia.

As an artist, Barb applies the rules of good design she learned as a watercolorist and acrylic painter, to her favorite hard-edge medium- Fabric.

This award-winning art quilter offers classes and workshops that teach students to Think like a painter, Create with cloth”.  Barb shares her passion for the ART of quilting through insightful lessons on aerial and linear perspective and using the seven-step value scale to achieve depth. As an experienced art teacher and lecturer, Barb still loves that “light-bulb” instant when a student sees what is possible.  To schedule a class or workshop for your quilt group,  quilt shop or quilt guild,
