Aly Barohn is a fiber artist currently residing in the Hudson River Valley, New York. She attended Chicago's Columbia College, where she received a BFA in Fine Art and Fashion Design. In Chicago and New York, she spent six years working as a costume designer in the film and television industry before leaving Brooklyn in 2011. Seeking a little quiet, Aly relocated to rural Arkansas where she found the time to begin exploring embroidery and other textile arts. Her body of work developed through her isolation and residency in the wilderness.

Her work is mostly based around embroidery techniques with all hand-dyed fibers. She strives to use experimental techniques and applications of the past-time craft, while evoking personal nostalgia through abstract forms, shapes and motifs. It is dimensional and textural, encouraging the viewer to experience the work through touch as well as sight.
