About Jen Hewett

Jen Hewett is a printmaker, surface designer, textile artist and teacher. A lifelong Californian, Jen combines her love of loud prints and saturated colors with the textures and light of California landscapes to create highly-tactile, visually-layered, printed textiles.

She is also an experienced teacher, having taught block printing on fabric to over a thousand students (both in-person and online) around the world.

When she's not creating in her San Francisco studio or teaching her popular block printing classes, she can be found hiking with her high-strung dog Gus, biking on San Francisco's less-hilly streets, or hiding out at her neighborhood wine bar.
