Miriam Vergara is a textile artist born in Brooklyn, New York. They are a queer first-generation Mexican-American who creates autobiographical work. Through a multilayer process of embroidery, dyeing and weaving, they expose their desire for intimacy, longingness for nature, and insecurities in mental health. They’ve been teaching textiles since 2015 through the use of workshops to demonstrate how textiles heal the mind and body.
