I-Chun Jenkins

Growing up in a tiny fishing village on the small island of Taiwan surrounded with a rich heritage of native culture and natural beauty, I became sensitive to vibrant colours and texture at an early age.  

I was formally trained in textile artistry in the New Brunswick College of Craft and design where I was inspired to combine my weaving skills with my creative thoughts to push the boundaries of textile art.

Creating intricate paper pieces from repurposed magazines allows me to stay with my traditional textile training in the form of weaving but to also explore using new materials and methods to create one of a kind work.Caring about the environment has led me to repurpose discarded magazine paper as my new textile.
