should be my middle name. I don’t like to follow directions!! My
enjoyment comes from taking a medium and massaging it in a way that
makes it come alive. Sometimes I find it necessary to take multiple
media and see how they can work together to artistically communicate.
In addition to quilting, I’ve endeavored to take photos and create
thread painted pieces. I’ve also dabbled in using flowers as a
medium on fabric. Each process expresses my love of nature and the
world we live in.
Brown is a Greer, SC fabric artist who incorporates a mixture of
media to create something out of nothing. She spent over twenty-five
years teaching English in New Jersey while always finding alternative
avenues to nourish her creative spirit. Her love of fabric and
tactile media began in her early twenties. She realized that she
found accessories and quilts more rewarding than clothing because
their “life expectancy” is greater—one outgrows clothes but
quilts and art never change. Jeanne has been expressing her renegade
artistic attitude for ten years. One of her most memorable artistic
achievements is the creation of her “Tata” for Tatas on Trade, a
Breast Cancer awareness endeavor. This piece now resides at the Gibbs
Center in Spartanburg, SC.
