It has been more than a year, or perhaps years now, since I adopted the ‘Lost in Fiber’ moniker. As many art and design friends know, I hesitate to call myself a fiber artist or textile artist at this juncture, as I am not focused on the mastery of any specific technique within the realms of these practices. The ‘getting lost’ aspect of exploring fiber’s materiality is what lured me in initially as well as its potential as a cultural connector and crafting matrix for modern artifacts and handmade objects. A sustained interest in highlighting the authenticity and regional specificity of fiber is what continually keeps me engaged in ways that also reflect my environmental concerns/research. It is in this spirit that I share a medley of materials recently featured as part of an art/design showcase with Sienna Road in NYC.

You can read more about the crossover between materials, methods, and places in this Lost in Fiber editions profile, featured on my Medium writing journal.
