About the artist

North Carolina artist Renee Holliday utilizes traditional metalsmithing and hand-sewing techniques to combine discarded clothing and textiles into wearable objects that subvert existing expectations of motherhood and femininity. Gathering her materials from thrift shops and secondhand stores allows her to honor her middle-class upbringing while also gleaning other’s unwanted goods.
