This self-titled Textile label has given Artist, Jessica Quinn, a vessel to work through her obsession of being a daydreaming documentor. The label began in 2015 and focused on a playful take on the surroundings of sunny Queensland, tropical fruit, flaura and fauna and other iconic aspects of Australian life. Jessica has grown her label slowly and steadily while maintaining a strong connection to her practice as an Artist. Her practice has often focused on family memories and photographs, these are now becoming stepping stones for new collections. As an Artist who enjoys and explores documentation, something as simple as family Sunday night dinners or Christmas lunches or weddings, capturing the beauty and humour in everyday moments becomes inspiration for a new scarf painting or linen print.
The philosophy of Jessica Quinn the label is to rely on local resources and support local makers. To contribute to slower fashion, encouraging minimal waste, whilst working with Australian suppliers. Jessica designs all garments in Australia, hand painting and sewing in her studio in Brisbane, Queensland with her husband Jack and dog Dolly.
