Jenny Boucher

Jenny Boucher grew up in the country north of Toronto, and have spent my life learning all manner of sewing, making clothing, and resourcefully creating whatever we needed. I come from a family of talented women, from my sister, mother, grandmother, and great grandmothers. I previously pursued an education in Fashion Studies (Parsons the New School for Design AAS) to allow me the technical skill to create and design a garment, and have sought a practical application for the beautiful couture and sewing skills I learned there since. I have found myself searching for a more creative application of my skills than the industry allows, and decided to return to school to develop an aptitude for textile design. I am currently studying at OCAD University as a student in 3rd year Material Arts & Design, and have found it to be a major turning point in opening doors to a new and rewarding career. I am constantly inspired by the surface design techniques I am learning and am thankful to be a part of the OCAD community.
