Dorie Millerson is a Toronto-based artist who's medium is lace. She creates intricate, small sculptures made from lace and suspends them using string. Millerson holds an Masters in Fine Arts from the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design. Her work is exhibited in Canada as well as in the United States. According to her website, “her studio practice involves research into stitched and constructed textiles and the potential for interlacement to suggest human experience.”

Her extremely detailed works center around the themes of attachment and memory. In order to explore these concepts, Millerson adapts textile techniques. She feels that she can literally draw with thread.
