Mary Bero’s intimate, decorative fiber works combine embroidery techniques with painting, drawing and sculptural elements to create primitive explosions of vibrant color and emotion. Bero weaves what she has called “tapestry paintings.” Her primary technique is to hand-stitch cotton or silk thread or floss to a cloth backing, simultaneously building up areas of color and texture that form striking images and patterns when seen together. She sometimes augments these methods with acrylics, cloth, or paper.

Mary Bero is a two-time winner of the National Endowment Fellowship for the Arts.
