Bouteloua (Catherine C. Reed)

Welcome to Bouteloua's website!

Using simple fiber techniques I explore the beauty and strangeness of nature; the balance between pattern and randomness in the natural world; and our perceptions of shapes and colors. I work at the intersection of art, craft and science. I do the opposite of what the instructions say, make do with available materials and overdo simple techniques. I have a scientist's mind and value the freedom from reality that art allows.

I'm happy to be working at SeedCo Studios here in Lawrence, Kansas, US, at 9th and Delaware Sts. Come by and see us the last Friday evening of any month. If it has to be virtual, find me on Facebook as Catherine C. Reed, or keep checking here. It would be great to hear from you and wonderful to meet in person!

Best wishes for all your projects,
