Michèle Kelly is a fiber artist based in Northern California. She became interested in fiber arts from an early age because of the tactile quality of fabrics and threads, and the ability of textiles to hold experiences and memory. Her interests are bringing old techniques into a modern context, experimenting with different fibers, including recycled materials such as plastic and paper, and keeping the traditional arts relevant and moving forward.
