Jen Swearington
Jen is the founder and chief designer of Jennythreads, a small artisan fashion line based in Charleston, SC, and author/ illustrator of "Printing on Fabric," a comprehensive textile design manual. Her joy in everyday wonder leads her to draw from life; her observational sketches and patterns become textile prints on her Jennythreads apparel, sold in galleries and boutiques nationwide. Jenna has taught at Arrowmont, Penland, UNC Asheville, and the Savannah College of Art and Design. Over the last two years, she has created a new series of innovative papercut sculptures and intricate pop-up books during several artist residencies abroad in Latin America and Europe. Outside the studio, she is an avid trail runner and backyard beekeeper.
