I am a creative person and I see art in everything. I have a great appreciation for all forms of Art including visual art, theater, poetry, etc. From a child I would look at something and try to figure out how it was made which triggered my creativity. I would imagine and visualize something and try to bring that vision to life. I like to design and make all sorts of items, from clothing to electronic circuits! I have been sewing clothing since the age of 7 and not soon after drafting my own patterns. I have degrees in Electronics and Internetworking. I have been an electronic journeyman for 39 years. Since the early 1980’s I have had careers that encompassed Electronic technology, computers, computer systems and networks, telecommunications, IT, troubleshooting, maintenance and research and development.
I was inspired to become an artist one day, by challenging myself to make portraits of people out of thread. And In order to accomplish this challenge, I decided to combine my passions. I attempted to create a portrait that looked realistic and that captured the essence of my models personality using fabric as my canvas and thread as my paint. This has been over 35 pain staking years filled with trials and errors, personal tragedies, numerous software applications and various hardware & peripheral interfaces. I ultimately succeeding in reflecting the character of the individuals in every one of God’s unique designs which I lovingly call THREAD FINE ART. I previously shared my artwork with only close family and friends. But my sister and a dear friend told me that my artwork was beautiful and if I shared it with the public they would love it. I didn’t believe them. One day my friend convinced me to visit my local Public Library to apply for a Local Artist Exhibit. I filled out the application, turned it in and the rest is History.
The purpose of a portrait is to memorialize an image of someone for the future. It can be done with painting, photography, sculpture, or almost any other medium. Portraits have always been more than just a record. They have been used to show the power, importance, virtue, beauty, wealth, taste, or other qualities of the subject. The thing I enjoy most about being an artist is creating artwork that is detailed and that has character and looks great at a distance as well as up close! The most challenging part for me is to create a piece that looks exactly like the vision I see in my minds eye. And hopefully others will see what I see and appreciate the detail that goes into producing it. I enjoy the fact that God inspires my artwork.
This exhibit is called From Jay’s Eyes which is my creative artistic expression of people, objects and events that interest me. The artwork in this exhibit was inspired by life and visions God inspired in me. I have worked with other media. However, Thread Fine Art is the media I choose to create all of my artwork. I hope that everyone that views this exhibit will go away with something that resonates positively within them.
