Fiber speaks to me as a person.
Janet Lasley finds that fibers media speak to her as a person. Learning from an early age from her Grandmother Olney, her Aunt Elsie Olney and studying as a young adult with Clara Creager at Ohio State University, her art has always worked in a hands-on 3-D direction. Lasley’s love of the natural world and her need to create, utilizing a mix of manmade and natural.
