ABSTRACT
This article focuses on the death and life textile patterns designed by Jane Sisco. Death and loss and the love of textiles have propelled her through a design-focused life, driving her, at age 50, to pursue a graduate degree at the Rhode Island School of Design. That accomplishment, and the death of her parents, drove her further to fulfill her life-long desire to create and launch an apparel line that graphically captures the mindfulness and movement of a moment, screen-printed on Belgian linen. She created non-traditional, non-functional quilts and pieced vests that were easy to carry and work on through years of parenting.
