Jacquelyn Roesch-Sanchez has been making Wearable Art since 1976. Her creations appeared regularly at Julie Artisans Gallery in New York City from 1978-2013. She has shown her work in galleries and museums in North America, South America, Europe, and Asia.


This artist, who has made her mark as a colorist, blends a complex palette of closely related shades across each piece of clothing.  Her repertoire of wearable forms includes kimonos and coats, dresses, blouses, and scarves. Using a knitting loom and pre-dyed viscose rayon thread, she makes fabrications that incorporate a limitless range of colorations. Hand-sewn and edged with intricate crochet, each piece is a unique creation.


Her fascination with color has also resulted in decorative expressions of art. In 2008, she was commissioned to knit a 12’ x 22’ ceiling for a restaurant in Montclair, NJ. The image is inspired by a blazing sunset seen from a plane.
