J for Jen Hewitt My Admiration for a Fellow Fiber Artist

This is Jen Hewitt. She prints fabric with hand carved blocks and silk screen designs.

Her Etsy shop has a whole selection of beautifully printed pieces you can buy by the yard.
She teaches classes you can attend in person in some wonderful locations as well as online.
I have been following her for a few years. She has done very well for herself
as a self employed solo fiber artist. Bravo! She puts her heart out there
 on matters of race & gender. She is working on her second book about crafters of color.

Jen's aesthetic appeals to me. Simple forms that repeat, many inspired by nature.

One of my recent creations that echos her design style.

I think along the same lines. No pun intended.

Her sweet little dog is a frequent subject of her Instagram feed.

Who do you admire from afar online? Do theyinspire you in your craft?


  1. Wow, her work is beautiful, thank you for the discovery (for me!)

  2. Very interesting work. I will check her out.

  3. This process always fascinates me. Such beautiful results.
