My name's Jennifer Neil and I'm a multi-media artist, based out of Portland, OR, who predominantly focuses on textiles and more specifically; quilting. My artist's mission is to change the way people perceive quilting. I believe that quilting has not been taken seriously as a medium because it has mostly been used by women out of their homes. My goal is to create bodies of work that push the limited view people have of quilts and to have them walk away with a new found respect for the medium of quilting.
I'm currently working on a new line called "Tectures." The name of the series is a combination of Texture and Architecture. The series is inspired by local Architecture and will be expressed in various textures; rug hooking, weaving, and quilting.
