Wool has always been in my life. I am from Argentina and my family work in the wool wholesaling and distribution business. I grew up surrounded by my mom, grandmother and aunts knitting as a daily task, and my dad needlepointing as a hobby. Wool for me means home.
My weaving tapestries are made on different sized looms with many types of wool, cotton thread and fabric, which include the use of repurposed textiles and wool from MN mills. With a no-waste philosophy in mind, I collect all the scraps in the making of my pieces to create new yarn.
My work is mostly abstract where organic shapes are in dialogue with geometric forms, softness with roughness, raw materials with mass produced ones, and plain textures with dynamic three-dimensions. They express warmth, connection and beauty, and continue the ancient tradition of weaving into modern life.
As an emerging Argentinian Fiber Artist, I am thrilled to be sharing my work in Minneapolis, my new home in the world.
