Jeannie Kamins

(Canadian, born 1941)

Jeannie Kamins creates figurative collages using pieces of fabric. She states, "Originally a painter, I began to work in fabric, using material I had been saving to make a quilt. One day I made a picture with my fabrics and knew I had found my medium! My issues are of family life, portraits, and political issues."

Kamins has a Bachelor of Fine Art from Emily Carr Institute of Art and Design in Vancouver, British Coloumbia, Canada. She has been based in Vancouver since the 1980s.
