My name is Janet Eickelman.
I was lucky enough to be born into a large family in Pueblo, Colorado.
My parents were transplants, restless by nature and curious about history. We toured all over the southwest, the country and people influencing us all.
I moved to Breckenridge, Colorado after graduation from college, the mountain environment played a large role in my livelihood and subject matter. I worked as a wall finish artist, aging walls, painting murals, installing hand printed papers until the need for natural materials steered me in a different direction. Learning to apply natural plasters exposed me to textures and dimension. Owning a home accessories store, during this time, allowed me to explore re-displaying a room quickly and seasonally.
My market consists mainly of second homeowners, with homes changing hands often. The need to create personal touches that could go with the homeowner became apparent and I began Nomadic Walls. The ability to change the feel of a room and create very personal images is my focus presently.
