Amanda McLaurin is an artist obsessed with color, texture, and shape.
After a decade-long career as an event planner, Amanda let the corporate world behind and relocated to Semarang, Indonesia in 2015. While living there she spent every available weekend exploring villages specializing in Indonesian textiles, furniture and ceramics. She returned to Washington eager to build her art practice and began teaching fiber art workshops.
With a desire to create pieces that were both sculptural and fiber based, she began wrapping wooden panels with wool and mercerized cotton. She loves exploring unexpected color stories and gathers inspiration from vintage quilt squares which are mimicked in the patterns of her color blocks.
