A native of Dalton, Georgia (the carpet capital of the world), Trish Andersen was drawn to the process of tufting as a means to reconnect with and explore her roots. After attending the Savannah College of Art and Design, Trish moved on to live and work in Brooklyn. There she spent a decade crafting custom installations and environments in New York, France, Hong Kong and Tokyo. Craving a slower pace and process, she began tufting to explore the notion of a native way of being -- the idea that authenticity lies in observing the characteristics of personal origin and nurturing those that reverberate in the present.
Andersen’s work has been exhibited at Design Miami/ and commissioned by Coca-Cola, Kimpton Hotels, Google, and BlackRock Financial among others. In summer 2020, she collaborated with Shaw Contract on Running Line, a collection of biophilic rugs. She currently lives and works in Savannah, and accepts commissions worldwide.
