I-Chun Jenkins grew up in a tiny fishing village on the small island of Taiwan surrounded with a rich heritage of native culture and natural beauty. She became sensitive to vibrant colours and texture at an early age and received formal training in textile artistry in the New Brunswick College of Craft and Design where she was inspired to push the boundaries of textile art through weaving. Conscientious about the environment, I-Chun creates intricate paper pieces from repurposed magazines. While staying within her traditional textile training through the form of weaving, she explores the use of new materials and methods to create one of a kind work.
