She creates garments infused with personal experiences by incorporating an incredible range of techniques including dyeing, weaving, crochet, freeform knitting, beadwork and embroidery. Each garment is a journey fusing layers of symbolism.
Jennifer Schermerhorn creates figurative sculptures that capture the relationship of humans and nature, challenging women's roles in society, and culminates in the juxtaposition between strength and fragility.
