If an artist/art student, my primary medium or mixed media is:
Jacque Davis creates art from her home studio in Freeburg, Illinois. With a history in the fiber arts beginning in the late 80’s when she learned traditional quilting, followed by many years weaving fine laces using silk and linen. Her longtime love of cloth and color has pushed her forward where she has worked the past 7 years creating colorful art for the wall using cloth, paint and stitch.
She dyes much of the cloth she uses and uses a wide array of surface embellishments to enhance her work. She teaches many of her techniques to students in her home studio.
Her work has traveled to many exhibits, won numerous awards, and has been purchased for private collections throughout the United States and Europe.
My name is Nora Doyle, the Physical Education Coordinator at America SCORES St. Louis.

I don't know if you received my e-mail but i'm sorry about your friend. I was asking about your fiber background and if your work is in a gallery?
I hope i can visit with you in the future.
Are you a member of the St. Louis Weaver's Guild? Your sense of color is exceptional. My ex-mother-in-law travelled the country seeking out hundreds of unique plants/organic dyes and documenting them for the ability to produce exciting colors.
Every person’s mind builds images while asleep or day
dreaming. This language helps us to process and
communicate our thoughts and feelings. Even as our
dreams are uniquely ours, they have a thread of the
everyday world in them. It is this thread that allows
us to recognize the common language spoken in dreams.
Cloth, paint, and thread provide the perfect tools to
capture the evocative nature of the dream world. Cloth,
soft and familiar to us all, provides the foundation. Thread connects the layers and lies visible on the surface, and paint can highlight or shadow an image adding another layer of interest.
My art work is a celebration of our connection to one another. When the separateness created by culture, society, and life disappears for a time, together we can rest in a quiet familiar place.
