Jodi’s journey began in 1967 when she ventured from her native Canada to explore Europe and the Far East. The colors and textures of Taiwan and Bangladesh, as well as the rich patterns intertwined in the histories of African and European countries became part of her soul.
Jodi is a self-taught artist whose talent emerges in every piece she creates. Inspired by nature, she utilizes a process called, or folding clay. Her unique style resonates across cultures and styles.
It is rare for an artist to fully recreate the intimate connection we all feel to nature, but through her use of natural and environmentally safe materials and her eye for design, Jodi manages to do just that. It is not unusual to see people smelling and touching the work.
“I fell in love with texture then discovered clay,” Jodi said. “I combined the two and now I just can’t stop. Finding new materials can take your work in directions you never dreamed of. I discovered stainless steel thread and waxed covered hemp and this gave me the opportunity to create endless lengths and heights of work.”
She has experienced overseas residencies in Africa, the Far East, and the Middle East and across Europe. Her work as a visual artist has opened doors for her to become a national curator and juror, and she is represented in Washington D.C., Houston Texas, Miami Florida, New York City, Germantown, Maryland and in Spain.
