Director Statement

Fiber Artist Alicia Evan's story is both an enthralling and vital dedication to narrating nature's tales through her 'Threads of Nature'. In an age where we're steadily losing touch with our natural roots, Alicia's fiber art acts as an artistic bridge, connecting humanity back to its origin — nature. Her method of crocheting yarn into the shape of beautiful trees allows her to weave a story in celebration of nature's colors, patterns, and rhythms, presenting a perspective that's often overlooked in our bustling urban lives. Alicia is helping bring awareness to the safety and preservation of our beautiful trees, and offers a call to action with each fiber art she creates, in an era of devastation as trees continue to burn and die all around us.
