Darlyn Susan Yee is a Los Angeles-based artist whose practice weaves together traditional and unexpected materials into complex designs that engage a dialogue between art, design and craft. Her meticulous, labor-intensive processes result in fiber-based sculptures and installations. She engages a dialogue that crosses cultural understandings of identity, gender and place. Complex, but with a sense of whimsy, Darlyn's explorations of presence and containment encompass large installations to small handheld vessels.

To contrast the perceptions of architecture as high art and craft as low art, Darlyn collaborated with Yarn Bombing Los Angeles onCAFAM: Granny Squared. The project to cover the façade of the Craft And Folk Art Museum with crocheted granny squares brought together over 500 contributors from 27 countries and 50 states. On the closing weekend of Art In The Streets at Geffen Contemporary at MOCA, Darlyn and other artists yarnbombed their cars in Have Yarn Will Travel to showcase another form of graffiti intervention.

Darlyn's artwork has been shown internationally in museums and galleries, and has garnered numerous awards. She was included in 100 Artists of the West Coast II by Schiffer Books, the publisher of her book Macramé Today: Contemporary Knotting Projects. Her work is featured in numerous private and public collections.
