R. Janette Graham

I am a porcelain artist, craftsperson, former librarian and sometime author. My main interests are writing, china painting and jewellery making. All of my work is original, and nowadays I do most of my designing on a computer.

I have participated in exhibitions, won prizes for my work, and had several articles and stories published. The following resume lists my exhibitions and prizes, published articles and references.
