Aimee || An Artist in Her Studio

While in NYC, I (of course) got a chance to visit my talented sister, Aimee McLaughlin in her studio. She is a Brooklyn-based textile artist and designer who works with all-natural dyes, silk, and simple linocut prints. For the past 9 months, she has been an Artist in Residence at the Textile Arts Center creating a new body of work along with 7 other artists from all over the U.S. and world. I couldn't be more proud of her, who she is becoming, and the progress she's made. Here is a little peek into her studio, and every-day life. 

Aimee states about her work: "Physicality continues to be an integral part of my work as I am drawn to manual processes. There is something so calming about repetitive action and transforming cloth with ancient practices like dyeing and block printing. My hope is to create fabrics which illuminate these tactile rituals and embody some sense of timelessness."

My other sister, Aimee, also came for a first-time visit to San Francisco. Nicknaming her Poison Ivy, we loved this shoot in front of a gorgeous ivy covered wall in Pacific Heights. Aimee is a talented textile designer and artist who lives in Brooklyn, New York. She hand dyed and printed the headband featured below! You can check out more of her lovely work here:
