Jennifer’s practice focuses on creating work from paper; by bonding, waxing, trapping and stitching she produces unusual paper ‘fabrics’, which are used to explore the ‘remaking’ of household objects. The papers are treated as if cloth, with the main technique employed being stitch; a contemporary twist on traditional textiles.
The papers themselves serve as both the inspiration and the media for her work, with the narrative of the books and papers suggesting the forms. She tends to find items then investigates a way in which they can be reused and transformed; giving new life to things that would otherwise go unloved or be thrown away.
Jennifer’s work has featured in many exhibitions in the UK and internationally and is now in many public collections. She has completed a variety of interesting and diverse residencies in schools, museums, galleries and theatres including recently a production of The Emperor’s New Clothes.
Her work has been featured in over 50 periodicals, including Vogue, Grand Designs and Elle Decoration to name just a few, and is featured daily on numerous blogs.
