Jeri has been working & playing with art & energy most of her life.
She remembers the delight of sewing doll clothes when she was
only 5 or 6 years old. She has always created with fabrics in different
ways, but when she discovered Silk Velvet she fell in love!
Nothing drapes and flows and shimmers in the light like this
incredible fabric. It moves & dances when you wear it, playing with its
own weight & reflecting the light in endless variations. It is actually a
combination of 85% rayon & 15% silk -- a match made in heaven.
Jeri's hand-dyeing process of uniquely blended hues makes the
possibilities totally up to your imagination.
Besides her artistic pursuits, Jeri has also been a professional somatic
therapist for over 20 years specializing in Acupressure, Reiki, Tao-
Somatics, eclectic massage & chakra work. She is a longtime student
of Tai Chi, Chi Gung, Chinese medicine, & various symbolic systems.
She has also immersed herself in, and taught others, the SoulCollage
process. See her art (and others) at: soulcollage.com
All this has developed her fascination with energy and how it can be
transformed on many different levels (mentally, emotionally, physically,
spiritually). It has also given her an appreciation for the amazing
growth that can happen for all of us simply through being more aware
of energy in ourselves, others, & our environment.
Jeri's passion revolves around how to make our lives more harmonious,
sacred, and enjoyable -- whether in our inner worlds, our body-mind
system, or our wardrobes and living spaces.
