Meg Brunston (they/them) is a fiber artist in Minneapolis, MN. Their creative practice is rooted in honoring their family’s lineage of quilt-makers, knitters, and seamstresses in the South, and their work is translated through multiple mediums, including technical weaving, apparel construction, machine tufting, and needle punch. These mediums allow Meg the opportunity to cultivate a brighter, more powerful relationship to themselves, revealing a mixture of emotion through color, movement, space, and shape.
