Jean Cacicedo

(American, born 1948)

Berkeley, California-based artist and teacher Jean Cacicedo creates sculptural artworks from fiber and handmade paper. She states, "Cloth, and the transformative potential of its’ surface and structure, is the primary element in my work. My sewn constructions tell stories about images collected from journeys both physical and spiritual.”

She received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in sculpture from the Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, New York. She has taught fiber arts at many national and international colleges and institutions.
