Tarja Cockell

My fiber art explores traditional textile techniques with a contemporary twist. A native of Finland, my work reflects the Scandinavian sense of simplicity in design. My motifs vary from abstract to representational images and are often merely suggestive, hinting at shapes and forms. To fully express my artistic intention, I incorporate several different techniques such as weaving dyes, paint, appliqué and stitching to create my work.

My studio is located in an artist community at Western Avenue Studios in Lowell, where I am also a member of the Loading Docks Gallery co-located there. I am a juried member of the NH Craftsmen League and I show my work in the Annual Fair at Sunapee, NH.
