2018 SAQA Benefit Auction

Meet Your Representative Lisa Jenni

Most of my life, I’ve made art in one or another form, but my current artwork concentrates on fiber arts and watercolor painting. For the past 13 years since I started quilting, my work has been accepted, exhibited and awarded in nationally and internationally juried exhibitions, several pieces are in private collections or have been published. My background in fine arts grew in years of formal and autodidactic education. Skills in many different fields of art influenced greatly my style of work. In 2007, I completed the Fiber Arts certificate program at University of Washington.  

Inspiration for my artwork comes easily from just about everywhere, but often from current events. I love to travel, take pictures and just look around, -and I mean REALLY look! Many years of watercolor taught me a lot how to catch the essence of a place, shape, light and emotion. 

My blog think-quilts.com is based on my quilt-related watercolor paintings of regional landmarks.

My background as a cartographer allowed me to develop fine techniques in piecing, applique and quilting. In my artwork, color, composition and allowing the "unexpected" to take place, pulls the viewer deeper into the layers: First catch the eye and then engage the viewer to step closer and explore.
