Dynamic, rhythmic and methodically crafted, Loring fuses venerated practices and innovative design, manipulating color, shape and dimension in her appliqued compositions. Loring’s design aesthetic is unabashedly bold, kinetic and playful, emerging from bags of scraps abandoned on her porch, or scavenged from flea markets and yard sales.
Original unique designs are assembled using various weights and shades of woolens, synthetic fabrics and felts and two common embroidery stitches, to reinterpret color, shape and spatial frolic. In January 1997, Country Living Magazine, published her “meticulous hand-stitched”, undulating, eye-popping designs. Using various needles and threads on hand-cut felt pieces amplify the visual freshness, enthusiasm and sophisticated naïveté trademark in her work, that grace many homes throughout the Mid-Atlantic region.
A material driven philosophy, stylized design and saturated color palate, inspire and energize each composition with joy, modernity and nostalgia, reacquainting viewers with childhood crafting experiences or various family textile relics. Artist's Website
