Jax began making dolls in 2006 and became a member of the Canadian Doll Artist Association (CDAA) in 2007. The next year she was accepted in the Grand National Quilt Show hosted at the Centre in the Square in Kitchener, ON. Her first award came in 2009 at the next CDAA convention and, in 2013, she was the guest artist for the Waterloo Region’s Quilt and Fibre Arts Festival.
