CAMERON ANNE MASON
Cameron Anne Mason came to fiber art through another passion, performance and installation art. She has since become an expert in a multitude of textile processes, from dyeing techniques to surface treatments and intricate stitching. Largely inspired by nature, Mason often utilizes nearby plants in her work, either in dyeing or as forms for printing processes. By using both endemic and invasive species, she juxtaposes native and non-native plants as metaphor. Her palette, also derived from nature, is a warm combination of earth tones and the greens of verdure. Often mistaken for paintings from afar, Mason’s textile sculptures are lushly detailed and attractively tactile.
Mason holds an AIS degree in Visual Communication from the Art Institute of Seattle, and studied Liberal Arts at the University of Washington. Her work has been shown across the country and at galleries around the Northwest, as well as Whatcom Museum of Art, Bainbridge Island Museum of Art, and Bellevue Art Museum. Her work was also included in a group exhibition at Miniartextile in Como Italy, and the Rio Patchwork Design Show in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
