About

 Artist Judi Magier in her North Carolina Studio

I am drawn to the intricate patterns in everyday objects. I bring my passion for color, form, and texture into my designs.

I collect indigenous fabrics, which convey to me a deep sense of the handwork and history of the places from which they originate. Drawn to the craftsmanship, the artistry and rituals surrounding these representations, I incorporate this inspiration with a slant towards today's sensibilities.

What started as a love of handmade craft and textiles evolved into a career as a designer of art knit sweaters for Timberland, Millma, The Peruvian Connection, and National Geographic Novica. The opportunity to work with luxurious fibers, an extensive palette of colors, and a myriad of handwork techniques enabled me to be a painter with yarn.

Working in my studio in Greensboro, North Carolina, I am continuing my exploration of color and pattern using cut paper as my medium. I'm also enjoy working in the digital arena where experimentation and happenstance play a large part of the creative process. The blend and range of colors and dyes result in vivid and intriquing fabrics and prints.
