Kelly Marshall

Custom Woven Interiors Ltd.

"My artwork is an expression of color and pattern created through the timeless process of weaving. "

Kelly Marshall's textiles are inspired by traditions, from historic patterns to modern abstractions. Color is examined in the detailed blending of the threads, while undulating texture creates visual shadows and tactile pleasure. Created for functional use, Marshall's textiles bring beauty to the ordinary and add celebration to everyday living.

The traditional Scandinavian rep weave technique perfectly complements Marshall's linear design style. The cotton and linen yarns are tightly interlocked with alternating thick and thin weft threads, giving textural dimension and luxurious sheen to this flat weave structure.

Marshall was influenced artistically at an early age by her grandmothers, both professional fiber artists (one a seamstress and knitter, the other a milliner). Marshall received her bachelor of science degree in textile design from the University of Minnesota in 1987. She studied weaving structure and design for one year in Forsa, Sweden. She also participated in the Fast Track Entrepreneurial Program at St. Thomas University in 1999.
