Today we’d like to introduce you to Trudy Perry.
Trudy, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
I started out as a fashion designer and have always had a passion for design. I am a tactile person and working with my hands really grounds me. About four years ago, I started to weave and haven’t stopped ever since. I find so much joy in creating pieces for people as well as teaching them how to make them.
Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
It has been an interesting path to get here today. Starting off in fashion was a great foundation but a really tough competitive business. I went down a noncreative path for a while. This was soul-sucking. It took some time to come back to my creative self. Weaving has done that for me.
We’d love to hear more about your work and what you are currently focused on. What else should we know?
Inspired by nature, I create unique, one-of-a-kind Woven Wall Art. I typically create small collections, make custom pieces and teach in person and online workshops.
I am proud to use all-natural materials from other many small business owners. I also love to incorporate crystals, feathers and other found items.
I am crazy about texture and I think the way I incorporate this into my art makes my pieces unique.
I love making custom pieces and large installations. I am not so good with small stuff.
Is there a characteristic or quality that you feel is essential to success?
My positivity and flexibility has helped with my success. I find these two qualities to serve me well in all areas of life.
