"She who dances with Ghosts" is the accurate understanding of the title that best reflects the artist, Rhiannon Griego. Time is the focal point and the essence of the nature behind Ghost Dancer. "How do we spend our time?" "How do we use the gift of waking life to make the world a more beautiful place and lastly, "What can I create with my hands utilizing this finite resource of time?" These questions provided a platform for the artist to delve into meticulous artwork. With fiber as her present medium, she aspires to remind modern folk of traditions throughout antiquity that require thoughtful and articulate nature to bring forth beauty. What clients and collectors alike are given through this process is in short, Rhiannon's time, her life energy that is harnessed into beautiful matter.
With a background in jewelry design and Saori Zen Weaving, Rhiannon has been able to express her inner beauty and reflections on her life through these disciplines. Each work is a memory of her travels, her fondness for indigenous artwork, and thoughtful interactions upon this Earth. “ She who dances with Ghosts " is the artists translation for the mystical connection to all those who have come before her.
The collections are all artist designed and produced. Each artwork is one of a kind and made in a mindful manner. All garments are woven in her in-home studio based in Ojai, California. It's her aspiration to encourage clients and collectors alike to practice conscious consumerism, moving into more a slow-fashion based mindset, supporting artisans and respecting time as commodity. Rhiannon teaches seasonal weaving workshops along with one on one workshops.
When Rhiannon is not in the studio, she loves getting lost behind the lens of a camera, camping trips, horseback riding, collecting fascinating people, botanical gardens and lots of laughter.
