artist statement...

Joetta Maue is full time artist primarily using photography and fibers. Her most recent body of work is a series of embroideries and images exploring the conflicts and contradictions that exist within intimacy. Joetta’s work resides within the realm of the everyday; everyday objects, autobiography, and the female. She is especially interested in the role of personal relationships in our lives, seen in our most intimate moments and spaces.

The role of craft practices such as embroidery and knitting are essential to her work because of their slow meditative labor and their role in the history of the woman’s voice. All of the linens used in her work are re-appropriated handmade linens creating collaboration between her and women of the past. Joetta’s work has been shown throughout galleries and museums across the country. 

Joetta authors the popular textile arts blog Little Yellowbird as well as being a regular contributor to the online journal Mr. X Stitch & the Textile Arts Center blog. She is featured in the recently published book. Indie Craft edited by Jo Waterhouse and in a forthcoming embroidery book in 2011.

Joetta lives and works in Brooklyn, NY with her husband, son, 2 cats and a
