Fiberarts Studios Contest


Jennifer Jenkins
Savannah, Georgia

My husband and I just moved into a new house with a two-car garage. This garage space has been transformed into my studio. I have a screen-printing table, my sewing machine, in-process or abandoned works, along with stashes and stashes of fabric. I’m in the process of filling the walls with inspirational art and any interesting ephemera I can get my hands on. I keep the wall above my sewing machine empty so that in-process works can be pinned up or hung as the piece develops. I find working at the sewing machine always gives me the up-close view of my work, and sometimes the most important decisions come from stepping back and viewing the overall composition. My favorite aspect: having the bits and pieces of past ideas and inspirations, which accumulated throughout grad school, around me while I work.
