About the Artist

Born and raised in New England, Sarah Haskell has a BFA in Textile Design from RISD and a Masters of Art and Healing from Wisdom University. As a seeker, maker and creative pathfinder her medium is most often thread. Sarah’s artwork explores the cross over between text and textile, investigating the mystery of encoded fabrics and the hidden language of cloth.
