ABOUT NATALIE

I am a process-driven artist. Drawing on diverse textile and bookbinding techniques I create unique objects, utilitarian or purely artistic. In my exploration of historical fiber arts, I seek to refresh half-forgotten methods such as embroidery, fabric marbling, mordant patterning, and the fermentation of natural dyes. This approach brings a complex, ever-evolving vocabulary of texture and surface patterning to the work I create. My freelance studio is based in Manhattan, but I also spend time in upstate New York growing and foraging natural dyes. I teach workshops on a variety of textile and book techniques at the Textile Arts Center and other regional continuing education centers.
