Wilson Biodiversity Foundation. Juxtaposing “domestic” techniques such as embroidery and paper felting against challenging issues of our time, her goal is to provide a quiet, unhurried space for reflection on and digestion of these pressing issues. Jennifer studied design and received her BFA from Carnegie Mellon University and her MFA from Stanford University. Her fiber work began after taking classes with Carol Beadle. She is a resident artist at Verge Center for the Arts in Sacramento. For more information, visit jenniferkimsohn.com.
