I enjoy the fluid movement of her pieces and the way she uses color.
I found two very interesting interviews with her where she talks about her heritage and her inspirations - a Smithsonian Archives of American Art oral history from 2005 here and this one from 2008 on Buzzine.

One of the best things I found out while looking at her art is that she has several pieces in the Brooklyn Museum - and I'll be in New York soon for a few days! I'll definitely be seeing her work in person.
Happy Creating! Deborah
While in college Ferne Jacobs was my inspiration, that has been many years now and I have developed my own sense of style. I still love Ferne jacobs work and am glad to run across it from time to time. Here is a link to some of my current work. www.mtbaskets.etsy.comReplyDelete
