Juanita Canzoneri of JCanz Studio
random information about me
I am, in no particular order: tall, near-sighted, married (to a tall, near-sighted man no less), Mennonite, diabetic, vegan (for health reasons), a knitter, marketing manager for an artists co-op, fond of lapis lazuli, in my mid-50's, a former editor and member of the grammar police, an alto who loves to harmonize, an avid reader, annoyingly punctual, and mildly tech savvy.
about my glass mosaics
Glass is cool! You can break it, melt it, etch it, and it doesn't mind at all.
I like to add things like collage, paint, beads, polymer clay, and fiber to my mosaics because it broadens my options for getting the effects I want.
about my fiber art
I'm a lifelong fiber addict and have knit and crochet on and off since childhood. Often what I make is functional or wearable. Sometimes it's not.
Some of my mosaic pieces incorporate knit and/or crochet work and hand stitching such as embroidery and beading.
