Kristi Nakata (she/her) is a Yonsei (fourth generation) Japanese American fiber artist born and raised in the Seattle area, on Duwamish and Coast Salish land. Kristi creates macraweave wall hangings combining techniques of macramé and weaving. Inspired by the beauty of the Pacific Northwest, she creates mountainscapes and abstract interpretations of the colors of our region. Her macramé products include checkered bags, coasters, keychains, plant hangers, wall hangings, and more.
Kristi's artistic journey began with oil painting and watercolor, and she dabbled in many arts and crafts forms until she found fiber arts. During the day, she works in nonprofit communications and marketing.
