joanie showed me this artist, sheila hicks, and i fell in love. she’s an american contemporary fiber artist, born is 1934. she has created these beautiful texture masterpieces. i would LOVE one of these in my home, wouldn’t you? and how cool is she in those necklaces? love that image.

my personal favorites of hers are the neutral or tonal colored pieces like above or below.

i love to see the older photos of her working. she started out making these smaller intricate pieces first and then moved into the larger statements.

with weaving such a big trend right now, it’s clear to see this was a major inspiration. remember our weaving workshops here? that was so fun.

what do you think of sheila? pretty great, huh?

    Oh, I love love love Sheila Hicks! I studied Fibers at SCAD and have been in love with her work since school. She’s such an inspiration and I love the breadth of her work.
    I also adore her tonal pieces the most. It really shows the beauty of the fibers when it’s all the same tones.

    I also studied FIber at art school, so Sheila is an icon. If you ever get to see her work in person, it is phenomenal!
