About the Artist
About the Artist
My name is Jen Keavey and I am a textile artist. I live on the West
Coast of Ireland in Co. Galway, and I am married to Kenneth of Green Earth
Organics! I work from my home studio to create beautiful individual pieces of
I have always loved making things and over the years the urge to create has grown stronger and stronger – so much so that I just had to stop and listen to my inner-self. Now I work on my art full time and am truly in my happy place.
This is also what inspired the name of my business. I am at my happiest in the woods, walking, sketching, taking photographs and just being present. Trees and art are deeply rooted within me and I wanted to make a statement about that with the name.
I take my inspiration from the natural world around me: from what I see out of the window, in the woods, around our organic farm, and the landscapes of the West Coast of Ireland. Creating what I see and feel brings me to a deep connection with the beauty of nature, from awe-inspiring cliffs to the delicate veins of a leaf. When you own a piece of my art you hold a part of that connection to nature and all the joy and wonder that it brings.
I create landscapes, seascapes, botanical art and animal art using my sewing machine as my drawing tool. My techniques include layering fabrics, raw edge applique, free motion stitching and hand embroidery. I sometimes add beads and shells. I particularly love the textures and patterns that fabrics can create. Many of my pieces are framed without the glass as they are so tactile; they invite you to touch. Each piece is one of a kind.
