Trudy Perry is a fiber artist living in Southern California. Inspired on a trip to India, she started creating hand woven wall hangings on the North Shore of Oahu, Hawaii. With a background in design and textiles, she has found her passion. For her, creating a woven wall hanging is a grounding, humbling and mindful experience. She finds weaving a very forgiving and creative process, a reminder to be present and to be self-full. Creating something that is intentional, thoughtful and visually appealing is deeply gratifying. She loves seeing the magic that happens when a piece is finished and the story it tells. She is also grateful to share her passion with others.
