Fiber Art by Monika Ellis

Main Library
Second Floor Display Case
November 6, 2019 - December 27, 2019 

Monika Ellis is a Bay Area self-taught fiber artist.  Originally from Canada, she enjoyed working with all forms of artistic mediums from a young age.  After arriving in the Bay Area and starting a family, she wanted to express her new motherhood experiences through art, and fiber was the perfect medium in both form and function. The pieces are inspired by the beauty of the Western coastline, with themes of growth, evolution, and rebirth.  Her work combines traditional woven art patterns, organic shapes, and at times, whimsical elements.  Instagram: @loomerystudios
