about

Jennifer Whitten is a Cleveland based artist who uses assemblage and fiber art techniques. Her work has always focused on the intricate. She has received awards and shown her work in regional and national group shows. Her work has appeared in publications, including books, magazines, calendars, and notecard sets. Jennifer Whitten has a dual career as both an artist and a clinical counselor. Artist Statement My art practice expresses passion for materials and methods and for finding a balance between product and process. My artwork is about both the content of the piece and the way in which it is created. I create medial objects that bridge between worlds. Intricate and repetitive processes, such as beading, stitching, binding, and embellishing, bring visual and haptic power to my work. I am inspired by expressions of other cultures that capture similar ideas, from the pointillism of Aboriginal artworks to the sequined surfaces of Haitian Voodoo flags.
