Biography

Jennifer gained a first-class honours degree in textile and surface design from Gray's School of Art, The Robert Gordon University before winning a place on the highly competitive MA in Constructed Textiles at the Royal College of Art, London.

From the start of her studies, Jennifer's talent and innovation stood out, culminating in a 'stunning' final degree show. Her work reveals exceptional talent shot through with wit and intellectual rigour.

Whether Jennifer's design takes her into theatrical design or a more commercial career as a textile designer, it is certain that she will be successful.

How the Dewar Awards Helped

Jennifer received a Dewar Arts Award towards her MA studies at the Royal College of Art, London.

After the Award

Jennifer's degree collection, see below, was based upon traditional Scottish knitted textiles given a contemporary twist with the use of unusual materials and processes. Jennifer won a Rowan Yarns design competition with her design appearing in the Rowan Studio catalogue.
