Christine Mauersberger is an artist and graphic designer. She has a B.A. in Studio Art from Cleveland State University where her concentration was printmaking. She is primarily self-taught as a fiber artist.
Her passion for fiber art began in high school when her teacher took her to see Fiberworks 1977 at the Cleveland Museum of Art. Christine’s recent textile works and installations have been exhibited in Intimate Stitches at Fiber Philadelphia 2012, Focus: Fiber 2012 at The Canton Museum of Art, Textiles in a Tube at Greenville Technical College and featured in Second Skin: Choosing and Caring for Textiles and Clothing by India Flint. Her work is included in various private art collections.
As a designer, she has created art catalogs for the Cleveland Museum of Art, University Hospitals, Glidden House, and various other arts organizations. Additionally, she worked as a curatorial and management consultant for University Hospitals and Kaiser Permanente of Cleveland.
In recent years she has developed a quietly intuitive style of mark-making with her hand-stitched fabric pieces. In her larger installation works she experiments with plastic emulsion film and other reclaimed materials, gathered from defunct Cleveland textile mills.
Christine Mauersberger is fully engaged in living and working in Cleveland and loves the gritty, rusty bits of history found throughout the city.
