Raeus Jae Cannon

Raeus Jae Cannon is a fiber artist using knitting and pin loom weaving to create one-of-a-kind wearable art pieces.  Raeus discovered her mother’s 1930’s pin loom at age 7 and quickly was hooked on the little loom that kept her occupied for hours. However, the loom was set aside for more than 40 years until after Raeus was introduced to knitting when she began incorporating the pin loom squares into her knitted designs.  Raeus focuses on the back of a garment that’s so often ignored. She wants people to compliment the wearer from the front saying: “you look wonderful today!” from the back she wants them to hear: “your coat/sweater is beautiful!”  Born in Philadelphia, PA, she moved to Knoxville, TN at 19.  She holds a BA from UT, Knoxville. She’s a juried member of Foothills Craft Guild, Townsend Artisan Craft Guild; and Southern Highland Craft Guild. Raeus lives in Knoxville with her husband.  She is the founder and CEO of REO, Llc (a referral organization for business professionals).

Her website is: www.raeuscannon.com.
