jeanmarie griffin's Profile

About

Artist/ Designer/ 30+yr Seamstress/teacher, they all can intertwine and where one stops it's hard to say where the other starts. I love vintage clothing,old movies and designers from the past like Edith Head, Betsey Johnson, and as Picasso used many mediums, so do I.
But now my passion is reuse so the majority of my work or fun you will find in my sub-line of art is called "a remix by jeanmarie" this is jeanmarieart whether it is fiber, wire or someone's trash, it had another life before it is turned into art. jeanmarieart is about trying to reduse landfill and if it can be functional art like my bags or lamps I feel even better about making them. Reused, Repurposed or Reclaimed are what I promote. I was blessed with pounds n pounds of reclaimed leather must have been scraps they are my most recent medium with much more to come
Please have a look around so I can share much of that with you!
