June Jacobs fibre work is inspired by nature’s miracles. She lives and works in an environment that allows her to witness seasonal extremes and transformations. Using her eyes to look and to see, Jacobs transforms these ideas and visions, utilizing various fibre techniques including: Felting, nuno felting, hand and machine embroidery, applique and quilting to express my interpretations. Her style is generally figurative and realistic. It is through the use of colour, combined with alteration of the form, addition of textural components and pushing the boundaries to the abstract that currently intrigues and challenging her abilities.
Jacobs has been active in Saskatchewan Fine Craft for more than thirty years in a variety of capacities: fibre artist, Exhibitor; The Hand Wave Gallery owner for 29 years; educator, workshop participant, adjudicator and juror, active Saskatchewan Craft Council member, CARFAC member; Saskatchewan Professional Art Gallery president and member and fibre guilds member and co-ordinator of many arts related activities.
