Visual Arts Instruction

Maureen Jakubson is a Mixed Media Artist, Fabric Designer, and Art Cloth Maker. Born in Maine, she moved to Ithaca in 1983 to begin practice as a pediatric therapist and Fiber Artist.

In recent years, Jakubson has concentrated on developing graphic impact with Shibori Stitch Resist dyeing. Finding the hand of the maker, mark of the stitch and relationship to the history of hand made cloth, has inspired Jakubson’s original fabric creations. She produces the fabrics in all her work using traditional Shibori techniques reinterpreted for contemporary surface design, as well as, a variety of fabric printing methods to produce mixed media fiber art. She has developed innovative, large scale stitch resist work based on African Adere and Japanese Shibori styles traditionally dyed in Indigo. She hand dyes, prints and dye paints on cottons, linens, wood and paper.
