Jana Roberts Benzon
Jana has a diverse artistic background in various mediums, but polymer has captured her creative spirit like nothing else....its ability to become just about anything is the height of creative freedom. Jana has focused on creating her brand of intricate "millefiori" canework and in perfecting her innovative techniques for building and reducing canes. From those canes, Jana loves creating interesting, dimensional jewelry pieces often evocative of Arabic or old world designs. While she'll never leave the geometric symmetry of caning, these days she's having a great time exploring the world of organic forms and "cutwork". Jana has always loved being a teacher and enjoys teaching polymer clay workshops internationally. She loves living in the Intermountain West where she can indulge in her favorite outdoor pastimes of hiking, snowshoeing and exploring. Jana's art is dedicated to her mother.
