Julie O’Rourke

Julie grew up in the woods of Maine. After receiving her BFA in Textile design from Rhode Island School of Design she continues explore traditional craft using modern design techniques. With a focus mainly in knitting, sewing, and weaving, Julie’s body of work reflects her appreciation

for start to finish design, consciousness of material source, and the simplicity and versatility of natural materials. She draws inspiration from her ever-shifting surroundings and can still often be found with pockets full of rocks, feathers, and sea shells.
