Jeny Stoesz is a Laramie, Wyoming based fiber artist who uses yarn, beads, bark, leather, antler or stone to create original weavings, wall hangings, home decor, and wearables that will be on display and for sale at the 6th Biennial Touchstone Laramie Art Exhibition hosted by the Laramie Artists Project.
From the time she was a teenager in Lander the colors and textures of Wyoming were like a magnet for Jeny. She now translates that fascination into non-representational weavings and yarns dyed to match the landscape, often embellishing wall hangings, home decor and wearables with beads, bark, leather, antler or stone. With her late husband, Mike Stoesz, she developed The Wyoming Collection of hand-dyed yarns and weavings based on 40,000 images Mike took over his lifetime. She often combines the hand-dyed yarns with the natural fibers of bison, alpaca, cashmere, and other Wyoming "critters." Recently she has added felting to her artistic mix. She holds a PhD in Education (Art/Music/Theatre/Dance) and welcomes custom work.
