Drew McKevitt is a knitwear and textile designer based in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and Petawawa, Ontario. She received a bachelor's degree in English Literature and Creative Writing from Concordia University and spent many years working as the managing editor of a poetry magazine in Montreal. She recently received a master's degree in Textile Design from Philadelphia University.
As a designer, she is drawn to unusual textures, intricate structures, and organic shapes. She is particularly interested in the intersection of philosophy and knitting; both are complex, logical, and also creative. Her work explores materiality, contradiction, metaphor, and intuition.
She also writes and draws the comic strip, Angry Pear.
