Vita Bohemes’ work is the result of the creative expression of the artist’s love and intrigue for interior design, familiar architectural shapes, color, movement, and natural textures.
It is also the result of her grip on the fundamentals of nature, the spirit of life, constructive forces, balance, and embracement of all the beauty evoked by natural and organic processes. By suspending hundreds of ethically sourced wool strands to a carefully crafted wood frame, the artist creates an elevated fiber canvas full of texture, warmth, and relaxing movement.
Each fiber is thoughtfully hand-dyed with plant-based and custom-prepared dyes. The end result is an eye-catching and sophisticated art piece that invites our senses to experience the texture layers while admiring the natural nature and uniqueness of the materials, pigments, and values used by the artist.
MEET THE ARTIST
Jessica Alejandra was born in San Juan, Puerto Rico. Since a very young age and guided by the hand of her grandmother (who was a skilled weaver), she started to experiment by working with dyes and natural fibers such as raw cotton, wool, jute, and hemp by doing small wall hangings and wearable accessories.
While finishing her studies in Human Biology, she became a licensed artisan and kept evolving her techniques and knowledge in the textile art’s medium. In 2015, she moved with her husband to Palm Beach, Florida, and decided to pursue her dream of becoming a full-time professional textile artist under the label of Vita Boheme fiber-art-studio.
A passion that one day started as a hobby, quickly became a thriving small art business. Vita Boheme art has been awarded as Best In Show at the ArtiGras fine arts festival. Her work has been featured on HGTV, Luxe Magazine and incorporated in decor projects by well-recognized interior designers, fine art consulting firms, hotels, country clubs, retail stores, restaurants, and private residences around the world.
