Nicole Asselin is a textile artist and educator based in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. Her work explores the intersection of craft, technology and the natural world. Asselin’s practice is narrative, telling the story of an object or material and its potential, both real and imagined. Her work utilizes magnification, abstraction, hyper-local material, and a hybrid digital/analog approach to making. She addresses and challenges themes of locality, tradition, innovation, handcraft, and sustainability.
