Starke - Art Teacher - Raleigh, NC, USA

Mary Starke

Raleigh, NC, USA

Summary

I have a Bachelor of Fine Arts, my concentration is embroidery. I enjoy the intimate connection that embroidery creates between the work itself, the viewer, and the artist. My fiber pieces are based around the concept of taking a female object that has been neglected or has become outdated and breathing life back into that object by creating a story about the previous owner visually.

Projects

Embroidery

My artwork is inspired by issues that affect women, specifically the long term effects of being raised to fulfill female gender roles. I enjoy the intimate connection that embroidery creates between the work itself, the viewer, and the artist. My fiber pieces are based around the concept of taking a female object that has been neglected or has become outdated and breathing life back into that object by creating a story about the previous owner visually.
