Jane Kenyon was born in Canada in 1953 and currently works in her home studio in Vancouver BC. She began her working life in medicine but had always been drawn to a career in visual arts. In 1993, she began working as an artist full-time.

The majority of Jane Kenyon’s art career has been in the medium of fibre, concentrating on hand and machine embroidery. Her work has been shown in solo and group exhibitions in Canada, US, Europe, Korea and Beijing, and has been published in fibre journals and books internationally.

Although she continues to develop her fibre art, Kenyon has also returned to painting, concentrating on working abstractly.

Kenyon’s artwork, including fibre, works on paper and on canvas, can be found in public, corporate and private collections in Canada, US and Korea.
