About the Artist: Jennifer Collier is a British artist who 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 investigate a way in which they can be reused and transformed; giving new life to things that would otherwise go unloved or be thrown away.
Her work is widely exhibited throughout England and has been featured in over 60 magazine including Vogue, Elle Decoration, Living etc, Times, Red, Eve, Marie Claire, Crafts, Embroidery, Country Living, Telegraph, Pretty Nostalgic and Selvedge, to name just a few.
