Jennie Maydew is a textile artist based in Queens, New York. Her functional garments, soft sculptures, and printed textiles speak of place, using local plants as dye sources on plant-based fibers. Her approach to cloth is both methodical and intuitive; it is rooted in the precise alchemy of endemic dyes, but shifts seasonally and responds to its adapting locality. Her most recent work questions the attraction of the body to its environment; a preoccupation that is informed by personal connection to the places where she wanders and gathers.
Jennie leads frequent textiles classes in the New York City area. View upcoming workshops to learn more.
