A little bit about me...


Hi, there! My name is Jess and I am so glad that you are here. 

I started weaving in 2016 and fell in love with the tactile nature of the craft and have been playing with fiber ever since. Each piece is inspired by a specific moment in nature... an anemone that moved in the currents of a tide pool, or a damp forest in the pacific northwest surrounded by lichen and shades of green. Being in nature is like taking a deep breath for me and I hope to translate that feeling into my art. 

I started Vevstol as a way to share these little worlds, my woven art with the world, but also to inspire and invite others to tap into their own creativitity. I have been so lucky to lead fiber workshops. I love seeing that light in a person's eyes when they get it. I always learn something from each of my students,  and it's such a relaxed and fun experience, always filled with laughter.

I know I am a better human when I set time aside to create and I dare say everyone is. I have heard so many people say, "I just am not creative". I don't think that is true.  I hope to build a space where we can all encourage and learn from each other, and feel safe to explore and play. 

Thank you for being here, it really does mean a lot to me to have you here on this journey with me.
