Janet at work in her home studio in inland Mendocino County

Zanshin Art is the home-based microbusiness of Janet Rosen, designer, seamstress, and artist.
The business is based on four principles:
1. Use quality materials
2. Listen to clients.
3. Honor deadlines.
4. Stand behind her workmanship. 

She takes time to solve client's design needs. If she feels another company or product will better meet their needs, she is happy to make a referral. 

The entire process start to finish should be a smooth collaboration and the outcome a product that combines form and function so the customer is happy to look at and to use the bag.

   Janet attended the Brooklyn Museum Art School prior to relocating to California in 1974. She learned to sew at The Sewing Workshop in San Francisco and studied patternmaking with Simone Sethna. 
   She has trained in aikido since 1996, teaches Low Impact Aikido as well as All Fall Down: Learning to Survive Falls at Ukiah Aikido, and has been a contributing writer/editor to The Mirror column at aikiweb.com since 2004.
