In an age of disposable messages, Carla Hansen’s are deliberate and take many hours to create.
This purposeful ‘writing in thread’ is a result of her lifelong love of words and pictures. Now she draws on everyday conversation, buzzwords and thoughts to make her viewer stop, think or laugh.
Carla never studied embroidery at New York’s School of Visual Arts where she earned her degree, but believes all of her creative experiences have lead her to this place.
Carla’s My Needle Habit has been exhibited at the Katonah Museum, Gallery Aferro, Lovebird Studio as well as several online exhibitions.
My Needle Habit will be included in a book of new embroidery artists being published later this year.
