Patty Lovegreen

Weaver, felt maker and bead worker

Artist Statement:

I try to honor the spinners and dyers when I construct a project. Texture and color lead me into the weaving process I call contemporary tapestry. Experimenting with bright, bold color and texture while using traditional stitchery is what makes this process intriguing to me. The endless variety from one skein of yarn keeps me always striving for better ways to highlight the uniqueness of this fiber art. Wherever I travel breathtaking sunsets always stop me in my tracks. I try to hold those colors inside of me until I can find just the perfect yarn.

Artist Bio:

Patty is very involved with the fiber arts community in Northern Minnesota. She teaches, demos and exhibits locally and regionally as well as being a member of the Weavers Guild of Minnesota.  From very early memories of playing with cut out fabric; color and texture are at the heart of Patty’s felt making and weaving. She loves working with fiber because it’s so pliant and enjoys the simplicity of a lap loom because it travels so well. It’s sort of like a spinner taking along a drop spindle or a knitter bringing a sock project along. She says, “no matter where I land I do a tapestry suggesting the area around me.”
