Respect the Process is a passion project that has allowed me to tell the stories of artisans and their process. The series spotlights creators of every discipline and focuses on what they do, how they do it, and what keeps them inspired.
Episode 01: Nikki Van Ekeren
Nikki Van Ekeren in a fabric artist from Brooklyn, NY. The root of her creations start with linen that she hand dyes. Her dyeing process takes a different shape depending on her mood, the piece she's making, or the desired effect. Pulling the bulk of her inspiration from nature (primarily the time she spends on the beach,) Nikki's pieces flow like waves and carry the same sense of peace you find when you spend quality time in nature.
