Jennie Lennick is a San Francisco based artist, seamstress, and teacher by way of Minnesota. Jennie learned to sew, bake, and embroider as a child growing up in rural Minnesota and draws inspiration from traditional domestic craft. Since moving to the Bay Area to attend graduate school at the San Francisco Art Institute, where she earned an MFA in painting, she became obsessed with the delicious fresh foods and food culture of Northern California.
In 2015, Jennie founded Jenny Lemons, a collection of block printed and hand painted women’s clothing which features repetitive food motifs. All of her cheerful products are block printed, hand painted and sewn in her San Francisco-based studio. When she isn’t in the studio, Jennie teaches sewing, embroidery, and fiber art classes all over the Bay Area.
