Artist's Statement

After experimenting with a variety of techniques and subject matter for a number of years, my work has evolved into imagery using words and language, textural surfaces, and often the incorporation of objects found in nature. When beginning a piece, the found object is sometimes the primary source of inspiration, recalling a memory or sensation; but more often I use snippets of poetry, conversation or puns to prompt the process of discovery and interpretation. Hand-drawn images and transference prints are often embedded within the surface of the piece, which become mixed media assemblages or layered original prints. This work traverses a wide terrain, from geological time and natural history to autobiography and emotions. “The world around us speaks to us in many different ways. The power of language and the abstract shapes of letters to create images is what interests me in this current work. Viewers may read into them what they want.”

Gwen has been creating wire work jewellery since 2009 when she checked out a book from her local library on wire wrapping and immediately fell in love with the techniques. She is a self-taught artist in wire, using techniques such as wire-wrapping, hammering & chasing, soldering & fusing, and viking knit. She has started to learn the technique of metal clay, again using tutorials and books to teach herself this interesting new medium.

Author BIO

My name is Ian Janssen and I reside in Elliot Lake, Ontario, Canada with my wife, Jan. We have two grown children who have provided us with 4 lovely grandkids who appear in my stories. The location for The Perils of Pierre stories is based on our cottage near Thessalon, Ontario, Canada. So far, there are 5 books in the series and more are planned.

I was a police officer for 31 years and a home Inspector for almost 6 years. From this, the only writing I did was technical report writing. This series of books is my first venture into writing for entertainment. Pierre and Polly’s escapades were originally for the entertainment of my grandkids, but through the encouragement of family, I submitted them for publication. After numerous rejections, I was successful in getting them published with Wee Creek Press.

There are 5 books in the “Perils of Pierre” series with more to come.

You can find me on Facebook and at my website at
