Juliana Scherzer is a textile artist based in Sydney, Nova Scotia working in free-motion machine embroidery and quilted leaves. Her work reflects the duality of the known and unknown roles of textiles in our everyday lives, as explored through the themes of biology, mending, and environmentalism.
After graduating from Sheridan College in 2018 with a Bachelor of Craft and Design, Scherzer has spent 2018 to 2021 as an artist-in-residence at the Cape Breton Centre for Craft and Design where, she continued to build her practice while branching out into production work and teaching a range of textile and art courses in the community. In Fall 2021 Juliana relocated to Toronto to start a residency in Harbourfront Centre's Craft and Design Studio.
