Artwork by Janie F. Woodbridge


Janie F. Woodbridge is a textile designer, artist, and teacher currently living in Durham. She received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Fiber and Material Studies from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and a Master of Fine Arts degree in Textile Design from Rhode Island School of Design. While in school, she learned many textile design techniques but found her passion in weaving.  After working in the woven textile design industry for 10 years, she is driven by the idea of combining the technical knowledge of the industry with traditional textile techniques. Color theory, woven structure, and the beauty in the natural world inspire her work.  She has shown her artwork in North Carolina, New York, Rhode Island, and Chicago.
