Patricia ‘PJ’ Jacobs is a former fashion reporter who gave up Prada for Patagonia. In 1993, the British born artist and travel/style writer put away her pen as a fashion columnist fro the New York Post to travel, paint and design.

It was not her first foray into the world of art: she once created wildly coloured hand kitted clothing, selling to private clients and several New York boutiques. However, Paris beckoned. While living there, she covered the European fashion shows for the Post and publication like Self, all while traveling and discovering painting on silk.

Her art ranges from velvet wall hangings to Oriental inspired abstractions on silk taffeta; her designs can be classified as art to wear. Clients include models, artists, actress Quessn Latifah, TV personality Daisy Fuentes, best selling author Harriette Cole and Obie Award winning actor Dael Orlandersmith. Her work has been featured in Essence, the New York Times, New York, Cigar Aficionado, House and Garden, Black Elegance and Fibrearts.

A chance assignment has her covering the Eco Challenge adventure race in the jungles of Borneo for TV Guide. Soon followed trips to New Zealand and Fiji; it did not take long before she became hooked on the sport, mountain biking, hiking, rope and kayaking) and decided she had to try it, competing in several races in Colorado and New York. She is now Co-authors an online outdoors sports column aimed at the urban adventurer, Divas in the Dirt (www.divasinthe dirt.com).

Now her life is many things. As well as training for various competitions, she travels around looking for adventures, like riding elephants in Thailand, dog sledding in Lake Tahoe, lava tube exploring in Hawaii and circumnavigating St. John (USVI) by kayak. She’s writing a book based on living outside the box, inspired by her orange Pumas; she’s also proposing a show for television based on her adventures.

Full figured and fit, PJ says “If I can do the things I do, anyone can.” That is just one of her mantras. Give her time, she’ll think of another.

transVoyeur and the Artist
London born, but world traveled, and based in New York, her experiences of other cultures is extensive, touching on the ethnic through to popular culture, the arts and media. transVoyeur is a natural progression in her personal and artistic developments, but imbued by an empathic affiliation with others in the cultural and creative developments of contemporary arts between New York and Liverpool.
