Jane Jackson

Jane Jackson is a nurse midwife, social justice advocate, writer, and quilt maker.  She spent her first residency at Treleven editing a series of letters she had written to her deceased husband Blyden (a civil rights activist who worked with Dr. Martin Luther King) and the grand daughter he had never met.  these were recently published as Letters from La Pineta.

Memory Quilt Workshop
Jane and Sas working together on a hundred year old quilt

The Gratitude Quilt featured above was one Jane made when she recovered from a brain aneurysm that nearly killed her. She gradually regained her powers of speech by a shared poetry writing process with her son. That experience is documented in Bi-Coastal Communication.  Jane returned to Treleven in the fall of 2019 to hold a workshop on making memory quilts.
