About

Le’Ecia Farmer is a queer Black parent currently based in Seattle, WA. She has studied fiber art (including weaving, basketry, natural dye, beading, and felting), visual art, and mixed media in Olympia, WA. Le’Ecia studied traditional and contemporary textile printing in Ghana (Kumasi, Ntonso, Accra, etc.) as well as apparel design in Seattle. Le’Ecia’s diverse skillset comes from technical training and education, learning from community, and self-teaching. She continually draws inspiration from the overt and covert connections between her cultural upbringing and art practice. Le’Ecia is keenly drawn to adornment and self-fashioning beyond surface level connotations. She constantly plays with the various meanings that materials possess and views every medium as an opportunity to explore, experiment, or disrupt. Le’Ecia often engages with themes of diasporic longing, loss, and representation. Le’Ecia is drawn to materials like cotton, wool, raffia, natural dye and vintage cloth. Le’Ecia treats these materials as living and vibrating things. They carry our stories, as we do them.
