Jacqueline Ehle Inglefield’s work featured in New Orleans Canvas Magazine

April 9, 2019

2016 Flint & Steel Resident Jacqueline Ehle Inglefield uses repurposed materials to create imaginative sculptures and painting which spark conversations surrounding the sustainability of our planet.

Her first recycled piece was a bear made entirely of old dry cleaning hangers, the screen out of old screen doors, and broken light bulb screw-in ends. “Ever since, I’ve melded my love of crafts, folk art, and fine art, and nurtured my need to recycle,” she says. “My passion is turning trash into art. I am always finding and thinking of ways to increase the ‘green’ content of my work.” About a decade ago her work changed from mesh to plastics because she wanted to add color into her sculptures. She uses permanent ink pens to paint on clear plastic and also combines the colors from such things as green Mountain Dew bottles. She cuts the plastic into a variety of shapes, colorizes them and painstakingly quilts them together. Her work is akin to stained glass as light plays an important part in the finished project.
