American fiber artist Sally England is known as one of the trail blazers in contemporary macrame. She attended an Applied Craft & Design graduate program in Portland, Oregon in 2010, where she created the first of many large-scale macrame wall hangings.
Sally often incorporates weaving, patchwork, and hand-sewn elements into her work. She is self taught and has created fiber art for a broad range of private and commercial clients including the Ace Hotel.
Recently Sally exhibited a body of fiber art at the Grand Rapids Art Museum, and I thought these amazing monochromatic pieces might be a nice way to ease into the week ahead. Enjoy!
