Louise Renae Anderson
Louise Renae Anderson designs and makes one-off handcrafted textile pieces. Working mainly within her weave specialism, she uses natural materials and processes and techniques involving traditional methods of dyeing and weaving combined with a contemporary approach to design. Her subtle aesthetic is explored through mark making, the breakdown of regular pattern into irregularity, and the beauty of imperfection. The works vary from calm, contemplative works of art to functional, beautifully tactile fashion pieces.
Andersonís passion for cloth developed from her study of fashion design: learning to understand structure, texture and colour and how to cut, drape and sew cloth with skill. This love of material lead her to study hand-woven textiles.
