Cat is an abstract fiber artist in Charlotte who works in a variety of textile forms, from small-scale felted sculptures to large tufted wall hangings. In 2020 Cat’s tufted work was awarded an Arts and Science Council Community Supported Art grant (CSA grant). She is also a proud member of the ArtPop Street Gallery class of 2021. You can see her artwork on billboards and signage all over the Charlotte area.
Cat’s current work concentrates on machine tufting, a technique that allows her to create art with her signature hand-dyed wool by using a yarn-fed power tool. She has also added a chain stitch embroidery machine to her studio and is having a blast making iron-on patches that range from downright silliness to affordable artworks. Keep an eye out for her cozy cocoon sculptures created with handmade felt, as well as other exciting new work, on her Updates page.
