Christine Novotny is a handweaver with a love of color, pattern, and design. Guided by her background in painting and drawing, Christine began weaving to create works with which participants could—tactile work that can be worn, folded, touched, and stepped on.

Christine is a Artisan in Residence in North House's Artisan Development Program where she focuses on her weaving practice.
