This biography from the Archives of AskART:

EVE PERI (1897-1966)

Born in Bangor, Maine, Eve Peri worked predominantly as an abstract fiber collage artist, creating embroidered compositions, wash drawings and paintings.  A modernist who favored rich patterns and organic forms, Peri cut and assembled found textiles gathered from travels around the world.

She lived and worked in New York, Mexico and Philadelphia with extended stays in London, Lisbon, Paris, and Rome. At a very young age, Peri learned embroidery, appliqué, stitching and quiltmaking techniques from her mother and aunts. As an artist working with these skills and as a designer with her second husband, the Columbian painter Alfonso Umana Mendez, she produced hand woven fabrics for interiors, theater and fashion.  Although her visibility was eclipsed in the decades since her death, there is now a renewed interest in her art as a result of  exhibitions at the Michael Rosenfeld Gallery, New York.
