In creating her new series Miniatures, the classically-trained flutist thought first of the viewer—using the small-scale works to draw attention to the intricacies of the work and to foster a sense of calm.

“I feel that I am a part of a tradition that generations before me have done, working with thread, working with their hands. It is my goal to carry on this tradition, but in a new way.”
A classically-trained flutist, Alyssa Breid found her artistic medium in minimalist weaving on canvas—a practice that is influenced by the Japanese and Scandinavian concepts of wabi-sabi and hygge. Breid’s work has been featured in the Netherland’s design magazine VTWonen and is featured in numerous international interior designs.
