Jette Clover (Belgium)

Jette Clover was born and raised in Copenhagen, Denmark, but she has lived and worked for many years in the US and the Netherlands. Since 2005 she has been living in Belgium.

She was a journalist before she became an artist, which explains why text and lettering almost always are present in her work. She is also an art historian and worked for 11 years as a curator at the national Dutch Textile Museum, where, alongside many initiatives, she organised the very first European Art Quilts exhibition in 1997.

Since 1998 she has worked full time as a studio artist and taught workshops in surface design. She has been a member of SAQA since 1998 and served as the international representative for three years. Since 2000 she has been a member of the European group Quilt Art .
