Anita Jacques is an award winning fiber artist and a member of the Wilmington Art Association. Her work reflects her connection with magnificent natural beauty discovered both locally and in her travels. At a distance, each piece appears to be a traditional painting, but as the viewer draws near, they enter into an unexpected fiber experience amid a world of texture, stitches and fabric. Art, in some form, whether it be drawing, painting, sewing or crafts has always been a part of Anita's life. At an early age Anita was taught by her mother to hand sew clothes for her dolls. She has made clothes and costumes for her two children, nieces and nephews and other family members. She has also created and sold plush, poseable bears. In 2001 Anita delved into the world of quilting and combined her life experiences and creativity into a unique expression as a self taught fiber artist. Many of her landscape art quilts are reflective of long drives through the Adirondack Park and other wilderness areas with her husband while photographing nature's beauty. In 2005, Anita and her husband moved from upstate New York to the coast of North Carolina. The ocean inspired new creativity. Anita's work has been featured in local shows and galleries of North Carolina.
