The Intriguing Fiber Art of Shirl Chouinard
Humans are the only species entirely dependent upon, and deeply intertwined, with cloth. For me, it is extremely important to find inspiration by directly employing either the medium or the processes of the material to amplify my concepts. My relationship to textiles is deeply personal, as it has offered me a stimulating and fertile medium for the abstraction of thoughts and feelings.
