About Meghan

Meghan Bogden Shimek is a weaver and fiber artist living and working in Oakland, California. Meghan is inspired by loss, movement, healing and the acknowledgment of uncomfortable feelings. She integrates the natural beauty of her surroundings, the memory of quiet snowy nights, and the sound of the stream running under her home into every weaving. Meghan uses traditional tapestry and Navajo weaving techniques along with organic movements to intertwine raw fibers and objects to create abstract and textural wall hangings.
