Katia Mokeyeva

Yekaterina graduated the Moscow State University of Arts and Industry. Her exploration of various methods and mediums has led to a development of a more specific direction that sparked love in the realm of textile and fiber art. As an extension to her education, she completed the junior and senior years at California College of the Arts in San Francisco, focusing on fashion design and textile. Partaking in a short summer study abroad program in London's Central St. Martins College of Arts and Design gave her a new spectrum of inspiration as a clothing designer. The possibility to create one-of a kind items from scratch with the use of artisan textile led her to the particular technique of nuno felting. The nuno felting technique involves the felting of wool fibers with the inclusion of various fabrics like cotton or silk, with looser or tighter weaves being a medium for texture outcomes. These weaves not only create the resulting texture, but also complexity and shape depending on combinations and techniques employed in the process. The creation process involving hand dyed wool fibers and woven fabric compositions uncovers a myriad of creative design and potential. Complexity and simplicity in these compositions are equally important in the artist's perception. Shape, color, texture, patterns all play a role in the final completed work, and are manifested as physical instruments to the imagination. The utilization of such techniques permits for the use of sustainable materials, which are the essence of Yekaterina's agenda to maintain the waste free and organic nature of her creations. Every single one-of-a-kind piece is hand crafted in San Francisco, where she lives and works.
