Renowned Quebec contemporary jewelry artist, Janis Kerman mainly focuses on the relationship between colors and forms. She works exclusively with precious stones and metals, skilfully blending organic forms and natural lines, smooth and textured surfaces with unexpected colors to transform her creations into unique works. Throughout her oeuvres, one notices the emphasis placed on balance rather than on symmetry. Her first creations date back to summer camp in arts and crafts, while she was still a teenager. She undertook training at the Saidye Bronfman Centre in Montreal in the early 1970s, then at Boston University. She opened her studio in 1977. Subsequently, she honed her skills through workshops and became an apprentice alongside several renowned jewellery artists.
Since then, she has been teaching, sharing and giving lectures on her work in Canada and the United States. Her pieces can be found in prestigious public and private collections, as well as in the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts.
