JDESIGNS ART WEAR
The magic of fiber art is discovering that my completed project is more beautiful that I had envisioned. I enjoy spinning angora from my French angora rabbits, to knit or to weave, along with fine wools, silk, cotton and bamboo. I combine natural fibers in knitted or woven garments to create exciting colors and interesting textures with a touch of sparkle. Wrap yourself or someone special in a unique work of Art to Wear.
I raise American Singer Canaries for their song and French Angora Rabbits for their luxurious colorful fiber. I use Japanese indigo that I grow from seed to dye my hand plucked angora with fresh indigo leaves.
I also paint on canvas and carve wood. I particularly love portraits of people and animals. I have created 'Whimsical Expressions' of Vincent Van Gogh, Marilyn Monroe and Yoda, Mermaids, Angels, Green Man, Wood Nymph, Roseate Spoonbill, Rainbow Trout and Great Horned Owls.
