I am a novice in the field of ceramics, primarily Raku, and lapidary art. While in college I took metalsmithing and had a minor in Art History. Now that I am retired I have the time to develop my interests in these arts fields. Please see Jill's listing in the Visual Artists directory.

Jo Ann is a fiber artist living in Ashland, Oregon. Over the years, Jo Ann has pursued her passion for fiber art by seeking new ways to utilize her knitting, weaving and felting skills to create fabric which she transforms into clothing and accessories. Jo Ann has a studio at the Ashland Art Center where she creates and teaches felting and other fiber art techniques.
Growing up in Hawaii, I absorbed the tastes and cultures of the Islands. My father, a photographer, also blessed me with an artistic eye for exotic colors and shapes. In 1991 I came to Oregon; my unique handsewn cotton Japanese and Hawaiian print Happi Coats and Kimonos, hand-painted silk scarves and wall hangings can be found at select art venues throughout the state. I'm often commissioned to create custom pieces to wear or to decorate the home or office.

Our guild is part of a larger regional group, Mountain Stars Quilters Guild
. Guests are welcome to join us-we specialize in fine appliqué and hand quilting, but all techniques are used and shared in our friendly meetings. We share our collection of quilts depicting Southern Oregon history at community events & quilt shows, and hold an Annual Quilt Show in July.
I create one-of-a-kind jewelry and wearable art that combine ethnic and modern themes with contemporary techniques. I begin each needlewoven necklace with fibers and yarns, then add metals and semi-precious stones for strength and sparkle. My scarves are handwoven on a floor loom or are nuno-felted with merino wool on silk chiffon.
Jannie creates stained glass art and fused glass jewelry from her studio in Talent. She evolved from classical designs to her own abstract creations, frequently incorporating geode slices into the designs. Her work has been published in an art glass book featuring glass artists from around the world and can be seen in various locations in Ashland and Jacksonville.

I paint with yarn. In 2002 I moved from 2D handwoven tapestry to art-to-wear, made on a manual knitting machine. Color & movement govern my design process. Life must be celebrated. This fact shows me how to support & accent the beauty of the wearer of my creations.
