Beadist Jan Huling’s Amazing Art

Jan Huling
A Gentle Man of Color
by Jan Huling

Jan Huling describes herself as someone who will transform just about any object into a dreamy piece of ornamental luxury. She says she’s not a nudist or even a Buddhist, but a beadist practicing a labor of love within her studio across New York’s great Hudson River in Hoboken, New Jersey. Her brother, John Schwab, and his lovely wife, Ellen, both artists in their own right, he a musician and she a collage/paper artist, introduced me to Jan’s work on our trip together in Mexico City last month.

I admire Jan’s patience in accomplishing her spectacular pieces that the New York Times dubbed “oddball assemblages.” You can find her gallery here, and find her on Facebook.

    1. John was so proud of her as he showed all of us her website. Can you imagine making these, Amy?
