Domestitchery is where we take a look at how talented people make ordinary domestic items extraordinary through creative needlework.
We’ve all seen classic quilts hung on walls and art quilts on display, but the painterly quality of Jen Swearington’s art quilts makes them really stand out. It’s important to note that this quality is complemented by her hanging method which floats her pieces in front of the wall giving the appearance of canvas stretched on frames.
I vacillate between the idea that the medium is almost of secondary importance and feeling that it’s the most extraordinary aspect of her pieces.
The variety of her subject matter makes her work even more intriguing which she describes as, “dreamy narrative illustrations drawn from my imagination and experiences.”
To see details of these pieces and more artworks (including handmade, hand-dyed and hand-printed clothing) visit her etsy store, JennyThreads and her website.
