Jenny Ymker was born in 1969 in the Netherlands. She is 50 years old. She lives in Tilburg (Netherlands). Sheattended the Constantin Huygens, Academy of Arts, Kampen (nowadays ARTEZ Zwolle).
Jenny Ymker uses herself as a model, and the world she shows is the world of her imagination, which is not necessarily feminine, but created from a feminine perspective. The Gobelins have been woven directly from colour photos. That the Gobelins are based on photos is obvious even to the untrained eye. The fabric of the Gobelins gives the pieces a grainy structure.
