J Fiber Art
by Jean Ann Fausser
Jean Ann Fausser is a mixed media fiber artist inspired by connections in both nature and mankind. From oceans, continents, the solar system and forces of nature to roots and even DNA, these various forms of connection comprise a theme that is constant in her art.
I’m first and foremost a colorist as I am drawn to the interplay of intense hues. Much of my inspiration is drawn from my concerns for and appreciation of the environment. Water imagery is often at the base of my abstract works. The three dimensional forms are conceptually varied and less tied to the natural environment. In the end what I want to create in all of my art are works that you the viewer will connect with and will be something that will enhance your surroundings. The main processes employed in my works are felting, knotting, coiling and bead weaving but are not limited to those as I continue to explore new processes and materials.
