ABOUT

Jenny Hildebrand is an award-winning feltwear designer and fibre artist working primarily in wool and silk. A self-taught artist, designer, and maker, Jenny combines the ancient processes of hand felting with modern techniques to create luxurious contemporary products. Jenny was born in Vancouver in 1959 and raised in the lower mainland. She currently lives and works in a home studio in Cordova Bay, BC, and draws inspiration for her work from the natural beauty of the Saanich Peninsula.

ARTIST STATEMENT

I collaborate with nature to create luxurious feltwear and unique wall installations using a combination of ancient hand felting and machine assisted techniques. My work is an affirmation of the inherent value, beauty, and interconnectedness of all things. My interest in textiles arises naturally from my ancestral roots which boasts farmers, cottage silk producers, seamstresses, and quilt makers.
