Jennie Maydew is a textile artist living in Brooklyn, New York. Her functional garments, soft sculptures, and printed textiles use local plants as dye sources on plant-based fibers. She graduated from Colorado State University (’15) in Fibers & Art Education where the spacious Western plains instilled in her a love of all things wild. She is interested in the precise chemistry of natural dyes and creating work that exists between science and art, intention and chance, method and intuition.

 

Jennie leads frequent textiles classes in the New York City area. View upcoming workshops to learn more. For yardage inquiries, custom orders, and collaborative partnerships, get in touch at jenmaydew@gmail.com
