Jane Jennings has always “made stuff.” She sat at an easel with her father when she was 6 and painted oils for the first time. When she was in fourth grade, she sewed her first dress. At 25, she decided to become a career artist. Since then, she has worked in oils, acrylics, pastels and wearable art. Recently, she fell in love with fabric and began covering wood-framed foam-core board boxes with fabric.
Her works are displayed at Walt Disney World and in numerous private collections throughout the United States.
“The primary material I use in my work is hand-dyed cotton batik made in Indonesia. These beautiful fabrics are patterned and dyed and over-dyed by native Indonesians. The colors are luminous, and in the words of one of my patrons, gentle hues. I have a collection, otherwise called a stash of nearly 3,000 different pieces I consider my palette.” – Jane Jennings
