Sheila Hicks: “Two years ago a friend gave me her book, and ever since then I’ve been captivated by her work. I love that she was a painter and then started developing weavings that were an extension to her paintings. They’re so delicate and textural, and they use so many interesting materials, it’s super inspiring to me. I also like that she incorporates a lot of found objects; her work is very organic and free. Nothing is overdesigned. I tend to be drawn to people who know how to balance texture and color.”
