As an artist with a technical background, fashion designer Heidi Herrman loves expressing her curious nature through fiber and mixed media, creating decorative pieces with rich and tangible textures. By hand stitching materials not typically paired together like vintage silk, paper and quilted fabrics, she layers each textile’s history to create new pieces that have a sense of familiarity and can be “cherished again in someone’s home.”
Herrman also explores the “what-ifs” of art using organic methods like the encaustic medium, and she describes it as a freeing process. “I’m really fascinated by art and tapping into my subconscious to see what’s there,” she says. “The abstract allows me to do that, and it’s exciting to see what comes out.” Find Herrman’s work on her Instagram account @heidiherrman.
