Come in a meet our Artist of the month for September Florence Johns. She will be featuring her wearable art and personal fabric creations. It’s a “Flo show” a red carpet fashion show.
‘Flo’ is a Florida transplant that relocated to the Verde Valley in 1989 and has no plans to leave any time soon. In fact, she adamantly says, “I love it here and will never leave this beautiful Red Rock Country!” Her interest in fabric design began early in her life by taking garments apart and redesigning them for her own pleasure. Later she turned her passion into art and a career.
“It’s A Flo’s “ original patterns and designs include elegant wraps and scarves , flowing tops, cardigans, tunics, and ponchos , all created in vibrant colored light weight prints that illustrate artistic intent. She also has created a line of unique boas; strands of brightly colored yarns that substitute for more traditional scarves. “I see fashion design as an art: the female form is the canvas and the medium is fabric.”
In addition to wearable garments, the artist is also creator and designer for “Joyful Expression Flags" for use in dance performance and worship; as well as “By Intentional Design” one of a kind fabric sculptures on canvas.
