Jen is the founder and chief designer of Jennythreads, her artisan fashion line, as well as author and illustrator of Printing on Fabric, a comprehensive textile design manual. Her joy in everyday wonder leads her to draw from life; her observational sketches and patterns become textile prints on her Jennythreads apparel, sold in galleries and boutiques nationwide and presented in galleries and exhibitions. Jen has taught at Arrowmont, Penland, UNC Asheville, and the Savannah College of Art and Design. Check out her amazing work below!
