Hello, I'm Janice King, a fiber artist and writer who has long had a deep sense of place in the forests of the Pacific Northwest. My work encompasses art quilting, textile collage and art knitting, combining new with rescued or repurposed materials. Although I have been a lifelong writer, I became an artist in midlife and I feel my creativity is just getting started!
For the artEAST community art center in Issaquah, Washington, I was an exhibit artist, curator, and community programming organizer for multiple shows. I also cofounded the Eastside Art Quilters group, am a long-time nature walk leader, and author of the local walking guidebook, Eastside Seattle Walks.

On the art projects page you'll also discover artist-in-action and participatory art-making workshops that I am happy to present to community groups. Contact me at janice @ writespark.com for more information on any of these activities and projects.
"My art and writing work is focused on encouraging others
to look for and create deeper connection with place.
I hope others learn to enjoy the direct experience a place offers
and the insights it can bring for understanding
the journey and lessons of our lives."
-- Janice King, fiber artist and author
