Jennifer Smith-Windsor is a textile artist. Her textile pieces incorporates second-hand textiles and hand and machine embroidery. She uses predominantly handmade domestic textiles such as lace and crocheted doilies as they act as a reminder of the women in the past who were tasked to fill idle moments and to beautify the home with these now, irrelevant objects. She has always been drawn to cloth, embroidering as a child, sewing her own clothes as a teenager, taking textile and costume studies as a young adult and now working with cloth in her art practice. It is cloth’s intimate relationship to the body, its ubiquity in our lives, its associations with the home, its links to the past and its relevance to the future that continues to inspire her.
