Writer and Fiber Sculptor
Woven paper basket

Louise Berliner is a word wrestler and thread twister.

She makes sculptures of words that sometimes look like poems or novels, and beings made of waxed linen, misc. threads and fabrics.

Her writing has appeared in VQR, Porter Gulch Review, Ibbetson Review, The Mom Egg, Sacred Fire and various chapbook collections. Her first book, Texas Guinan, Queen of the Night Clubs, written in part thanks to an NEH grant, is a biography of a Roaring ‘20s night club hostess famous for saying “Hello, Suckers!”

Her sculptures have appeared most recently at Lex Art ("Community Healing" and "Exploring the World of Fibers"), in an outdoor installation at Old Frog Pond Farm ("Emergence"), the Paula Estey Gallery (“How We Heal”), Concord Art (MJ1 and the Roddy Exhibition), The Umbrella Arts Center (“Migrations”), Maud Morgan Arts Center (“Images of Grief and Healing”) and the Nave Gallery Annex (“Vessels”).

She has a studio at The Umbrella in Concord, Massachusetts.
