Avnaim, of Ocklawaha, is a self-taught, mixed media textile artist who focuses on creating hand-embellished fabric designs. She has always been fascinated by hand sewing, enjoying the process and time invested in the craft.
After years of quilting, Avnaim developed her own application of fabric design. Throughout the process of experimenting with this new-found love for embellishing, she created pieces to fill her home, surrounding herself in her practice. She enjoys the energetic quality of these designs and the ability to have a positive impact on the viewer.
