Janine Partington explores mark making and colour through the carving and painting of leathers and other materials to create distinctive and appealing surfaces. The simplicity of the process, the hand of the maker being visible, is important to her. Janine is constantly working towards the creation of a distinctive visual language in her chosen medium - experimenting with marks, composition and colour, playing with form and layering.
Janine loves the freedom of working instinctively, each mark responding to the presence of what has come before. This creates a fluid environment where she can work in different dimensions, on the wall, on the table, on the floor.
