About

jen cantwell - knitting

I am a multidisciplinary designer-maker, cutter, stitcher, conceptual knitter, lover of typography and scribbler of lines who is fascinated by the unfiltered bombardment of images, concepts and information that floods my eyes, ears and brain on a daily basis.
My work takes traditional handskills and mixes them with unrelated materials, methods and technologies to make collage based installations, wall pieces and small objects often with a playful interactive element.
This carries forwards into my design practice as an irreverance towards rules and a love of pushing materials and processes to the edges of what I can personally achieve without having to outsource to specialists.
