Jane Dunnewold {Podcast Episode #116}

When I decided to produce a surface design podcast series, Jane Dunnewold was a natural choice. Spanning a thirty year career, Jane has worked in various surface design medias, written several books including Complex Cloth: A Comprehensive Guide to Surface Design, Art Cloth: A Guide to Surface Design on Fabric and Creative Strength Training: Prompts, Exercises and Personal Stories for Encouraging Artistic Genius, is the Past President of the Surface Design Association, and founded the Surface Design Studio at the Southwest School of Art.

Living in San Antonio, Texas, she has her own teaching studio as well as works with her daughter on her Creative Strength Training courses. During our conversation, we talk about how personal challenges shape your work, the connection between psychology and creativity, how our work can be a reflection of our voice, and more. I hope you enjoy this episode.
