Marsha Borden
Artist | Maker | Master of Science

I’m a fiber and textile artist. In my projects, I strive to creatively combine art and science to reflect on the relationship between society and nature. Much of my studio work involves the Slow Design Movement, which encourages makers to create work in socially and environmentally responsible ways. I'm also a published historical writer with an interest in 19th Century needlework around the world.

In my current Connecticut Sea Grant work (awarded in 2022), I’m creating large wall sculptures that depict several different HABs (Harmful Algal Blooms). I’m thrilled to be showing these works to the public in November 2023 at Alexey von Schlippe Gallery of Art, University of Connecticut, Groton, Connecticut and at Kellogg Environmental Center/Osborne Homestead Museum in Derby, Connecticut in May 2024.
