Juliana Scherzer

Juliana Scherzer is a textile artist working primarily in free-motion machine embroidery and quilted leaves. Her work explores the duality of the known and unknown roles of textiles in our everyday lives, as explored through the themes of biology, mending, community, and environmentalism.

After graduating from Sheridan College in 2018 with a Bachelor of Craft and Design, Juliana spent three years as an artist-in-residence at the Cape Breton Centre for Craft and Design where she continued to build her practice while branching out into production work and teaching a range of textile and art courses in the community.

Juliana was accepted as an Artist-in-Residence (Textiles) at Harbourfront Centre in 2021.
