Jomama is an energetic eco boutique brand with a bohemian vibe, for the free spirit; a little vintage, a little bohemian...all eco cool wearable art. It was born out of a passion for unique things and...a NEED to recycle.
"I respect the connection I have with the earth and value all it has to offer me in the form of materials and inspiration. My artwork is an extension of my lifestyle and a result of my upbringing, experiences and travels. I've been an artist my entire life and have evolved from canvas to fabric to metal. Being an environmentalist and mixed media artist, I incorporate recycled elements and found objects, as well as eco-friendly products into my work whenever possible, giving things a second chance at life. Having organic roots, my pieces tend to focus on inspiration from nature." Jo
With a collected education, this organic mechanic is drawn to discarded items radiating nature's patina. Crazy about color and texture, and taking it to the next level, she has learned soldering, casting, fold forming and enameling to add layers to her designs. She also crafts personal family heirlooms into wearable memories.
Her love for metal has evolved into recent pieces which are a compilation of soldering and cold connections using recycled cans. Her work can be found at the Museum of Art Fort Lauderdale, as well as in retail boutiques.
Along with blogging, she is the ICE Resin® certified instructor for Florida, was an ambassador for Bernina, featured in Daily Candy, Celebrate Green eco blog, Antisteez, and OM Times online. She's attended Artfest, Bead & Button Show, and teaches locally.
