Harriet Kohn


Highland Park, Illinois

Harriet discovered embroidery as an art from after her daughter was born in 1991. She had been painting with acrylics on canvas, but painting became difficult with a new baby, this is when she discovered stitching on painter's canvas. The sensuousness of pulling thread through canvas, the meditative rhythm of stitching and the various textures that she could create with fibers, fabric, beads and other materials.

"I chose to participate because artists from around the world are coming together to support recycling and express respect for the environment." Harriet Kohn
