About Me

I’m Alison Altafi, a nontraditional fiber artist living and working in Syracuse, New York. I started weaving in my twenties and focused on creating wall hangings and more traditional tapestries. In recent years, I have transitioned to mainly weaving in the round; I find the cyclical nature of round weaving to be very cathartic and meditative. I create art that feels magical, otherworldly and fantastical- art  that I myself can escape into. I’ve had my work referred to as “portals” to other worlds and I love imagining them in that way.
