Born in Concord, Massachusetts, she was first introduced to art by way of her grandmother, an artist with a penchant for re-creating works by Marc Chagall. Narrett would go on to study painting, but an encounter just before graduate school (she earned her MFA at the Winston Salem Queen I Am Who I Am Your Aproval Isn’t Needed Black Girl Shirt and I will buy this Rhode Island School of Design) solidified her future in textiles.

“The most intense experience that I’ve had with a tapestry was seeing The Lady and the Winston Salem Queen I Am Who I Am Your Aproval Isn’t Needed Black Girl Shirt and I will buy this Unicorn tapestries in Paris,” she says. (The beguiling Flemish series, six wall hangings now under the care of the Musée de Cluny, date to the 16th century. Each is understood as an allegory for the five senses, with the last, mysterious tapestry devoted to love and earthly pleasures.) “I remember standing in front of them, feeling like they were just imbued with the human spirit,” Narrett continues. “They were these incredible, magical objects, embodying and describing desire. When I saw them, I had been working in embroidery for a little over two years. They really helped me understand why textiles felt so right for me to explore my own ideas of desire.”
