Original, wearable art.

According to Greek mythology, Arachne - a mortal woman - wove captivating tapestries rivaled only by the gods. Athena, the goddess who envied her the most, banished her to a life as a spider, forcing her to weave for all of time in the mystical groves of her homeland of Lydia. If Arachne were a modern day woman, what would this artisan create? Arachne’s Hollow brings this question to life.

Arachne’s Hollow is the creation of me, Lisa Starkey, a Syracuse, New York based artist. Growing up, I had the never-ending desire to create. I’ve dabbled in everything from drawing and painting, to knitting and weaving, to bookbinding - anything I could get my hands on. I love the creative process and learning the skills of trades that are nearly forgotten in our modern world.

Later, I studied to become an art historian at Syracuse University. After studying the Masters, the need to create works of my own became even stronger. With a background in art history, and a flair for antique shopping, it is not surprising that I am most inspired by things from a time gone by. Aesthetically, my favorite things have a sense of history to them; a bit of magic woven in.

Taking inspiration from my love of history, literature, art, and even nature, I aim to create beautiful and unique pieces. Although I never stop learning, and am a student of many mediums, my main focus is on sewing. I love to make accessories such as bags, hats, scarves, etc., and even an occasional item of clothing. I like practical items, but with a unique personality. My intent with this endeavor is to grow as an artist, and to express my unique voice in the steadily growing world of handmade artisan goods.

I hope that you enjoy my work, and encourage you to please stop by often, as I will be adding many more items soon!
