Jennifer Gould

I started sewing as a child on a sewing machine as well as embroidering taught to me by an elderly neighbor from Liverpool, England.  In high school I taught myself to weave tapestries, but it wasn't until my 20s that I finally got to weave on a floor loom and learn to handspin yarn.  Many years later I combined all those studies in making art dolls and wall pieces.  My current work is focused on three-dimensional work on which I first dye paint cotton with Procion MX dyes, then shibori stitch, and finally dye in indigo. I love combining all the textile techniques I've learned into fiber pieces.
