About The Artist
Megan Penniston Aujla • Atlanta, GA
Fiber & Textiles • CUSTOM COMMISSIONS
Megan’s creates large scale, unique, wall hangings from fiber. Her work starts as an idea or sketch, then uses foundational techniques such as latch hook, felting, weaving, embroidery, macrame, crochet, punch needle, tufting, and dying and pushes the limits of how they can be used. With a focus on texture and form and through the use of contemporary color and design, Megan incorporates ideas and influences from her experiences into new works of art with a modern aesthetic.
Q&A with the Artist
Tell us how your work is made.
My work is created by hand in my home studio. I have a custom-made extra large standing loom which can be used to weave on one side and tuft or punch needle on the other. My macrame pieces are hung from an industrial steel bar used to hold a sliding door. My work begins with inspiration from the world around me and is brought to life through practiced techniques. I strive to keep my creative practice experimental, not cranking out one design repetitiously, but always keeping things fresh and pushing the boundaries to try something new, therefore, each piece is one-of-a-kind.
