SmartWorks

Another Local Artist!


For some reason, every time we go to the show are drawn to interesting booths and many of the are in the Hudson Valley or the Berkshires. We are so excited to have another Local Artist in our Family. Look at these scarves! They are incredible! The colors are so vibrant and the fabrics are to die for! It's like wrapping your neck in a cloud!

Drawn to the textures, colors, and patterns found in nature, the resulting scarves are nubby and uniquely three-dimensional with a mixture of fabrics and tones. Those who wear them can express their own individuality and satisfy a need for style and comfort.

Sonya achieves the quality she strives for in her work by manipulating traditional knitting looms and finding innovative ways to use them. She enjoys experimenting with combinations of yarns that are effected differently by heat and water.

smARTWORKS, Inc. was founded in 1994 in order to foster an environment where Sonya could focus her work on designing and producing scarves. Her scarves are well regarded and are found in fine galleries, boutiques and craft shows in the US and abroad.

Sonya Mackintosh believes in giving back to her community. That's why smARTWORKS, Inc. contributes to the local economy in ways specifically pertaining to animal rights, cultural organizations and health issues that are close to her.
