Janie Ranger originally trained in fashion and textiles and worked for Mary Quant as a designer for five years in the early seventies. She went back to art school in 2004 and did a degree in Fine Art.
I’ve trained twice! Firstly back in the late 60’s I did Fashion and Textile Design at Ealing School of Art (Freddie Mercury was a student there then!) In the noughties I went back to Uni and studied at the University of Gloucestershire for a BA in Fine Art.
A lot of inspiration comes from my collection of animal and human bones, dead insects and other detritius.
