I started out designing and making hand loomed knitwear and taught others the craft as well. I wrote several books and authored a computer program aiding in designing knitwear. Over the years I branched out, designing and painting clothing and shoes. My work reflects my love of color and unique designs. I love wearing art. I love seeing others wearing this unique art.
I have a home studio. My husband and business manager, Peter, is very tolerant of my taking over the house! When I’m not busy knitting, sewing, creating buttons and home accessories, dyeing fabric and coming up with new design ideas, I’m usually playing with or walking my lovable Westie, Cooper and Golden Doodle, Izzy.
Leslie and Jason, my two adult children have made Peter and I empty nesters. Jason resides in Virginia, working hard at his sales position. Leslie has, more or less, taken after her mother and is currently employed by a large corporation in designing retail store space. Leslie and our son-in-law made us proud grandparents of Chase and Sienna.
About Jills Wearable Art
My clothing, shoes and accessories are all about color, design and attitude. I add a whimsical flair to classic shapes and materials. Each piece has something unexpected. Look for one-of-a-kind details, creative color combinations and balanced designs.
My clothing art features hand-dyed fabrics and unique, handcrafted finishings. Sometimes an item needs a closure other than a button or pin. My Magnet Pin/Button works perfectly. It is a closure that can be placed anywhere and will not damage the fabric with pinholes.
One look at my hand-painted shoes and you’ll know why they are called “Happy Feet.” There are many different styles of Naot shoes to meet your everyday needs, besides being a most comfortable shoe.
Naot shoes are uniquely engineered insoles are a blend of natural latex and cork that are designed to replicate the shape of the foot, just like the footprint we leave when walking the sand.
