BIO:   Janice Sullivan graduated with a BA in Textiles from Boston University and Massachusetts College of Art with a Masters in Art Education. She lived in San Francisco from 1982 – 2005, teaching classes in Weaving and Surface Design and exhibiting her work both locally and nationally. She has taught at City College of San Francisco since 1995, as well San Francisco State University and College of the Redwoods in Fort Bragg, CA. In her thirty five year study of loom manipulated, multi-tensioned double weave, she has pioneered a new approach to sculptural textiles. Her wall pieces also incorporate painting, printing, stitching and dyeing techniques.

Her wall pieces are represented in many corporate and private collections across the country including several Kaiser-Permanente Medical Centers,Moody’s Investment Services, Quantum Corporation, Summit Medical Center & Southwest Texas Methodist Hospital.

After living in San Francisco for 23 years, Janice Sullivan moved to the Mendocino area in 2005 where she maintains a weaving and dyeing studio and continues to teach.
