As a textile artist and designer, Eliza Squibb is interested in the intersection of textile arts and cultural identity. After studying textiles at the Rhode Island School of Design, she taught design workshops in three indigenous communities in the Peruvian Amazon. Upon her return to Providence, Eliza joined the nonprofit GAIA Vaccine Foundation, where she is the Executive Director. She worked with GAIA founder Dr. Anne De Groot to design a West African-style textile print to raise awareness about cervical cancer and to encourage screening and HPV vaccination. The pattern is produced in West Africa and worn by healthcare workers at GAIA’s partner clinics in Bamako, Mali. Squibb has also worked as an artist in residence at the Marine Biological Laboratory in Woods Hole, MA and the Edna Lawrence Nature Lab in Providence.
