"This is an 8x8" embroidered piece, framed in a hoop. It is a part of a small series of embroidered work that focuses on spontaneity, overlap, and a variety of inconsistent stitches." - Jasmine David

I am a Puerto Rican artist and I mainly do embroidery work. I participated in a fiber arts workshop at Haystack Mountain School of Crafts in the summer of 2019 having absolutely no experience in embroidery or weaving. My time spent there was extremely rewarding and inspired the art practice I am focusing on at the moment. Using various stitching techniques and compositions, I embrace spontaneity and the meditative process of embroidery. One of the most important aspects of my process is the many hours I spend to create each of my pieces. I love the idea of exploring traditionally domestic or "craft" art making processes and using them as a way to ease anxiety by focusing my mind on each individual stitch. I hope that my work encourages viewers to consider the ways in which craft art, traditionally associated with domesticity and femininity, can have new meanings in our present era.
