Moira O’Neil (b. 1990) is an artist & weave-ist based in Chicago, IL. A vested interest in constructing soft monuments to cultural clutter has led her to use intimate craft-based practices such as floor loom weaving, latch-hook rug making, and the use of the hand-operated digital Jacquard loom. Check out new works by Moira at The Plaines Project.
