Loree Jackson lives and works in Hollywood, Florida. Loree has been a maker her whole life. Collages and puppets and drawing when a child and into her young adult years. She learned how to weave in her senior year of high school and fell in love with the warp and weft. Loree wove for many years until a neck injury prohibited her from crawling around the big loom anymore. Needing to create something, Loree turned to painting for a while but this didn’t satisfy her need for the tactile gratification that weaving gave her. Loree still loved to draw but wanted to express her drawings on fiber. Eventually she found her way to studio quilting and fabric collage.
Loree’s works are driven by her drawings. Mostly her work centers around mothers and children, water birds, and the environment. At this time, Loree is using free motion quilting and embroidery. She also uses hand embroidery techniques. Loree uses mostly upcycled fabrics in her works.
When not in the studio working, Loree spends time with her family or in the ocean bodysurfing and enjoying the outdoors.
