The culture of being creative is strong in my family. My mother, grandmother, and her mother before her have all been fabric artists. They work with traditional methods and tools, but the work they create shows a mastery in their trade and artistic vision. My sisters and I have all picked up this thread of creativity and woven it into our own lives. While I focus on drawing, painting, and mixed media, I also quilt, embroider, and sew my own clothing.
