While having a fully equipped studio, free time, and technical skills are
vital to creating your own art and product, they will mean nothing with-
out a little inspiration. While you can find ideas in the world around you,
it is also great to be aware of historical and current art trends and design
references to be inspired. Following you will find some of our favorite cur-
rent working artists and designers.

Erin M Riley
Loot 2
2011
Erin M. Riley uses woven tapestry as a
main medium, portraying images from
our current young-adult culture in the
U.S. She often hand-dyes her yarns
before weaving the intricate images.
Adrienne Sloane
Casting Shadows
2011
The use of textiles and fibers in art can
be highly sculptural and also deceive
the eye. Textile processes can also be
used for nonfiber materials. This piece
uses knit wire and cotton, showing a
great example of using a nontraditional
material.

2010
Adrienne Sloane most often uses knit-
ting in unique and creative sculptural
ways, defying what we may typically
think of as knitting.
Joetta Maue
Happily
2010
Joetta Maue is an embroidery artist
who explores themes of intimacy and
family, often using her medium and
collage to create three-dimensionality
to bring characters and words off the
wall. She often uses found objects and
repurposes vintage linens and lace on
which to embroider.
