My art represents the marriage of my two great loves: digital art and fiber art. Such an odd union – current digital technology and ancient textile techniques.
I don’t start out with an objective. The work tells me what it wants to be, and I am often astounded by how it evolves. Here, viewers often find a scenario or potential story that is widely open to interpretation. Each individual sees something different and no one is right or wrong. It’s a personal journey.
Jayne Gaskins produces work that defies media categorization. “I really don’t care if you call my work photography, digital art, fiber art, mixed media, or even painting. It’s art. Everything else is irrelevant.”
Gaskins’ work has been exhibited in galleries and museums throughout the US, Europe, Asia, and Australia and has earned numerous awards for excellence. Her art is in both private and museum collections and has been shown in prestigious exhibits such as Xe Triennale Internationale des Mini-Textiles (France), Quilt National, and FiberArt International. It has also been published in books such as Art Quilts Unfolding- 50 Years of Innovation, The Natural World: Profiles of Major Artists Galleries, and Art Quilt Portfolio: People and Portraits, as well as numerous industry journals.
Gaskins holds a BFA in Graphic Design and an MBA with a concentration in Marketing and Management. She is a Juried Artist Member in Studio Art Quilt Associates and currently serves on the Board of Directors. In 2006 she retired from a long successful career in communications and has since allowed her imagination to take her to places she never knew existed. The journey continues.
