Janet Ayliffe : Australian Print Maker

Janet Ayliffe : Australian Print Maker

We met Janet about a year ago. I was really impressed with her etchings and she agreed to put some into our Galleries.
Janet Ayliffe has been working as a print artist, painter and printmaker for more than 20 years. In that time, she has developed a highly original style that reflects her life, her environment and her family. A pioneer of solar plate (Photopolymer) etching techniques as well as multiple plate work, she produces art that is, at once, accessible and deeply complex and, at times, mystical.
Here you will discover the breadth of her creativity as well as a window into her life, her development, her children, her home and the hills, animals and plants that surround her. You will find, too, the emotions that stir her, the issues that concern her and the people who have touched her heart. And you will learn a little of the skills she has developed, from wood engravings to intaglio etching, aquatint and oil and watercolour painting.

Most of all, you will be offered a view into the art of her heart.
Born and brought up at a farm on Kangaroo Island, Janet now lives with her family at Honey Humm Farm outside Kangarilla, a village in the beautiful hills region south of Adelaide in South Australia.
She teaches drawing and etching technique in classes near her home and conducts workshops during interstate visits.
Janet’s work is displayed in public and private collections and in art galleries throughout Australia and in many other parts of the world. She regularly contributes to group and solo exhibitions and the major craft shows around Australia. Her work has won many prizes (CV and Exhibitions)
