This week we talk with Constance Collins of Constance Art Couture from Indianapolis, Indiana.
Constance expresses her artistic voice through pattern and color. Using primarily alpaca, bamboo, silk and a dash of metallic for sparkle, she modifies traditional weave structures to create unique patterns. Her complex weave structures create a sense of rhythm and play as they interact with her bold warp and weft colors. Her strong sense of color comes through particularly in her art pieces. Similar to pointillism, she creates works that reveal deeper texture and strategy the closer you inspect.
We hope you enjoy part one of our conversation with Constance as we talk about what is means to be seen as a weaver, finding the right market for our work, and the relief of cutting off a warp that just isn’t working.
