Mia Hocking

My work (and medium) is inspired by materials that have lived one life and are ready to be reborn into a new piece of artwork. I seek out discarded and recyclable materials along with layering paper and fibers to create interesting textures, shapes and color combinations.

My latest project is a children’s folktale about the origins of the seven days of the week. Based in Norwegian tales, the story follows Thor, Woden, Frigg and more through our week. The book will be available October 24, 2015.
