Jennifer’s connection to all things vintage forms the basis of her textile work. Jennifer has a way of reviving the old and adding a happy, modern spin. This approach can be seen throughout her various mediums of work. With unusual artistry, a love of texture, and a blend of vivid colors, Jennifer uses everyday inspiration, journaling, collaging, and materials from her past to cultivate new ideas and fabric designs.
“I try to design fabrics and items that help us share memories with those we love. My designs are rooted in the things I handled as a child,” says Jennifer. “The materials I choose, whether a vintage ornament or a simple cutout, elicit a memory from everyone who sees them,” she continues. “I love it when people call it ‘eye candy’ because that’s how I feel about it –it fills you right up.” Sis Boom’s fan base is worldwide and ranges from celebrities to traditional “crafty types” to Folk Art collectors. Jennifer’s collection not only boasts a plethora of fabric lines and PDF sewing patterns, but also two Chronicle published books, Girl’s World and Happy Home, as well as a line of home decorating products ranging from pillows and rugs to aprons and table linens.
The Sis Boom Collection, its name adopted from her childhood nickname given to her by her twin brother, defies easy categorization. With unusual artistry and a love of texture and a blend of vivid colors, Jennifer uses tag sales, flea markets and European sources as a starting point to create her art.
