Stitch Art That Satisfies My Soul – Guest Blogger: Marie Plakos

August 18, 2017

I am a fiber artist and a photographer.   My fiber work includes using experimental materials, unique techniques, as well as traditional stitch in contemporary ways. I travel the world for photography and use my own photographs as inspiration for my fiber and stitch designs.

Photographing women around the world has drawn me to my current fiber work.  I see the beauty and strength of many women who live in adverse conditions.  Their handwork, use of color and design, speaks to the artist in me in every way.

My years of study with Gail Harker have given me the skills I needed to produce works of stitch art that satisfy my soul.
