Jennifer’s medium is usually fabric that has been dyed, printed with a myriad of different techniques, and then layered & fused, or stitched, cut away & stitched again. Layering – of colours, of patterns & textures, of fibres & stitches, of images & cultural references – this is at the core of Jennifer’s art practice. She is particularly interested in intersections, disruptions & reversals where positive & negative space, natural & man-made patterns, order & randomness have an opportunity to coexist & interact.
Jennifer studied textile arts at Capilano College, North Vancouver, from 1999 to 2002 and now works out of her studio in Pender Harbour. Her textile paintings and paper collages were featured at a solo show at the Gibsons Public Art Gallery in October 2017, and at the Kube in Gibsons in April 2017. Previous venues include FibreWorks Gallery in 2013, Urbanity in Vancouver in 2015 and a two-person show at the Bowen Island Arts Council Gallery in 2014. She served as the BC representative for SDA from 2004-2014.
