Cameron Taylor-Brown is a fiber artist, curator, and educator who has dedicated her career to elevating the field of fiber arts through organizational leadership and research. After being introduced to the study of fiber at UC Berkeley by the artist Ed Rossbach, she pursued textile design at Philadelphia College of Textiles and Science, where she later went on to teach. Since 1985, she has lived and worked as an artist in Los Angeles.
Taylor-Brown’s artwork incorporates mixed media approaches such as photo transfer, paint, and collage into traditional weaving and embroidery techniques. She draws inspiration from the rhythmic structure of textiles; the expressive potential of interactions between color and texture. Her work has been widely exhibited and published in industry periodicals and design books.
Taylor-Brown has been involved with a number of organizations dedicated to fiber arts and textile commerce. She was a founding board member of the nonprofit Textile Group of Los Angeles, and currently serves on the boards of the Fowler Textile Council and Textile Arts Los Angeles. She founded the textile resource center ArtsGarage, and co-founded the arts education consulting partnership ACCESS Community Arts & Education. Two educational programs created by accessARTS were introduced to the state of California’s charter school system in 2004. She has previously served as president of California Fibers and Designing Weavers. Other organizational affiliations include Textile and Fiber Arts List, Handweavers Guild of America, Museum Educators of Southern California, Surface Design Association, Textile Society of America, and Southern California Handweavers’ Guild. In 2019, she curated the exhibit “Material Meaning: The Living Legacy of Anni Albers” at the Craft in America Center.
