Erin McQuarrie is a textile artist and designer and current graduate student at The New School, Parsons School of Design. Her work pursues finding a marriage between craft and digital techniques. Inspired by a strong connection to sites and their history, McQuarrie uses archival research in combination with site photography as a starting point for design work.
She has a keen interest in mixed media approaches to create new hybrid fabrics which pay homage to methods of handcraft and utilise the benefits of modern technologies. Often using familiar everyday base materials, she challenges their potential through process, creating textiles with interesting colour harmonies and intriguing tactile qualities.
