I'm Mackenzie. I primarily make soft text-based work from reclaimed materials. I repurpose words and phrases from various sources - film, literature, people in my life - and pair them with the familiar comforts of tattered bedsheets and worn pillowcases, printed and embroidered florals, which bring a history all their own to each construction. I am currently based in Los Angeles, California, but have called the Pacific Northwest my home for most of my life. In addition to my love for sewing and object-making, I love yoga, getting outside, and my cat, Charles Bronson, Jr. Jr.
