Kate Kilmurray is a textile artist based in Ojai, California and practices the art of handweaving as a form of embodied meditation. Making beautiful handwoven textiles helps her to tap into her inner stillness and creativity.
After many years of working as a visual artist and textile designer Kate focused in on her own pursuit of true health and wellness and discovered yoga and meditation and found herself called to the path of conscious, contemplative living. This influence is evident in her craft, with her experience of weaving one of presence, awareness, and ritual. Her designs reflect inner stillness and deep communion with the colours, textures, and patterns of the natural world.
She believes that using our hands in craft, we can quiet the mind and reconnect with our innate creative essence. By having her textiles in our everyday lives, we invite depth, beauty, and meaning to our daily lives.
