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 were featured at a solo show at FibreWorks Gallery in 2013, and at a two-person show at the Bowen Island Arts Council Gallery in 2014. She served as the BC representative for SDA from 2004-2014.
