Fremantle J Shed artist Janet Nixon has won the Rockingham Castaway Sculpture Award with her beautiful dog artwork Checkers, made of recycled materials.

Janet really deserves this recognition as she has flown under the radar a bit in the shadow of her partner Greg James, so I am truly delighted for her as she is a wonderful person and her series of dog sculptures are amazing.

There are more doggies on display at the Bathers Beach studio in the big southern one with the large glass wall facing the beach, so go and check out all the great work that is going on at J Shed.

Congratulations Janet!!!

    Congratulations on behalf of the volunteer Guides at the Round House Janet. That is fantastic news. You certainly are an adornment to the Arthur Head Precinct …… in fact all of you in J Shed are! Delighted to have you all as neighbours and to recommend J Shed’s talented artisans and your productive studios to our visitors.
