Jennifer Lee Morrow is a mixed media artist with a particular interest in hand papermaking. She received her BFA from Rhode Island School of Design and her MFA from the University of Kansas, both in textile design. She lives in Deer Isle.
Morrow’s collages and constructions portray energy and how it is present in our lives, often using botanical imagery. She uses stitched together hand-made paper, fabric and found materials, which are usually arranged over a wooden or copper framework. Some pieces explore the effects of light through translucent papers and silhouettes or mirrors as a way to see further into the piece.
“The stitch is a record of the construction of the peice as well as a decorative element or way of making a mark. Patterning is used and images are juxtaposed to create a resonance between piecing and patching of textiles and other repairs in our lives.”
