Sheila Hicks: “I think the closest equivalent to Sheila Hicks in terms of the designers I work with is Lauren Manoogian, because she uses knitting machines a lot, and her sense of color is very similar. There’s a very organic and crafty feel about her work. Whenever I visit Lauren’s studio it’s so much fun there, with all these colors and yarns, and I’ve been thinking myself about making some hand looms. I would love to have a life that’s that simple, where all I do is make pretty things — that’s my ideal.”
