Hi! My name is Jean. I have been immersed in fiber from the time I was a young child. My interest was fostered by my mother and grandmother throughout my childhood and into my adult years. I spent time exploring the world of painting after I graduated from the University of Alberta, and was re-introduced to fiber by Lucille Roxburgh of Calgary, Alberta when she taught me traditional rug hooking in 1985. Since then I have experimented with different techniques and fibers. I love color and I love texture, and I invite the viewer to explore that world of color and texture with me.
I have exhibited across Canada and in the USA. In 2012 I became a juried member of the Saskatchewan Craft Council and started selling my work. I sold work through the Affinity Gallery in Saskatoon, and Traditions in Regina. In 2019 I moved across country and left the Council behind.
Now, back in my home province of Nova Scotia, I am represented by Visual Voice Gallery in Truro, Nova Scotia.
How to find me and my work
I have work in private collections in the United States and Canada. My work is available from this website.
If you really like what you see here, and want to see work in person or purchase work, you can check my work out at Visual Voice Gallery in Truro, Nova Scotia. You can also find me on ko-fi and on Facebook.
See you around!
