Meet YIELD: Morgan Gesell Mudryk

Name? 
Morgan Gesell Mudryk
 

What do you do at YIELD?
I work in the studio at Yield manufacturing the bags.
 

How did you get started in your work?
I got familiar with a sewing machine at a young age and have always had one close by for my many projects. But after sewing on a Juki for a few months it's hard to come home to my old Singer.

Where are you from?
I was born and raised in Ohio and Indiana. I've lived in Florida for almost 15 years so that officially makes me a Floridian.

Hufflepuff, Gryffindor, Slytherin, or Ravenclaw?
I'm a Gryffindor but I married a Ravenclaw.

What's your favorite cocktail or type of beer?
I love a super hoppy IPA.

What's your favorite type of product / project / medium to work with? 
At Yield I love sewing the bags. I enjoy any work that involves repetitive motion and muscle memory. Sewing the same part of a bag over and over is very meditative and similar to my art making. I enjoy tedious work, for example, my personal project right now is creating a series of hand drawn paint-by-numbers based off pop culture references.

 

Celebrity crush?
My high school self would be yelling, "Keanu Reeves!!" My current self would say Amy Poehler because I love her.
 

Guilty pleasure?
Right now.. The Brady Bunch
