Janet Bodin was born in Houston, Texas. After living in Mexico City and Rome, she returned to Texas where she graduated from Trinity University in San Antonio. She now lives in Houston with her husband and they have two grown daughters.

"My interest in sewing and embroidery began in childhood. As an adult, my interests expanded into the areas of fabric dyeing and painting, needlework, beading, and felting. During a visit to the International Quilt Festival in 1996, I saw an art doll exhibit and was completely enchanted. I began creating my own original art dolls soon after, incorporating various fiber arts into my figurative sculpture."

Janet has exhibited in numerous galleries and juried exhibitions. Her dolls have won awards locally and nationally. Her work has been featured in various publications including Art Doll Quarterly, Contemporary Doll Collector, Soft Dolls and Animals, Australian Dolls Bears and Collectables and the books 500 Handmade Dolls and Deeper into the Woods.

Janet is a member of the Original Doll Artists Council of America, the Texas Association of Original Doll Artists, Houston Area Fiber Artists, and Mixed Media Artists of Houston.
