My name's Jennifer Neil and I'm a multimedia 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. Throughout history, quilting has not been taken seriously as a medium because it's been viewed as a "woman's hobby". 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 series is inspired by local Architecture and will be expressed in various textures; embroidery, weaving, rug hooking, and quilting.
