Jacque Davis has a long history in the textile arts beginning in the late 80’s when she learned traditional quilting, followed by many years weaving fine laces. Her work has traveled to many juried exhibits, won numerous awards, and has been purchased for private collections throughout the United States and Europe. Her longtime love of color, texture and stitch is evident in her richly colored and densely stitched art. She teaches many of her techniques to students in her home studio. She has studied discharge dyeing with Bob Adams and has recently completed a two and a half year Art Cloth Mastery Program in San Antonio, TX. Jacque's work was juried into the Artcloth Network in spring 2013.
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.
