The Catskill Kiwi

New York, NY

I am a Fiber Artist and make large+scale woven and soft sculpture wall hangings.
I have always loved textiles, texture and all forms of fiber, I have a unique collection of materials that I collect and use in my work I like to let the fiber dictate how it will be used in a piece. All of my work is unique and one of a kind piece.
I fell in love with weaving and its creative process and being able to put my modern take on it, what I also love about weaving is there are no rules.
As a native New Zealander, I split my time between NYC and Upstate NY in the beautiful Catskill Mountains, hence my name a Kiwi in the Catskills…
