Sara also strives to create new and different approaches to looking at plain weave fabrics through surface embellishments. Working primarily on a plain weave background Sara enjoys the challenge of investigating everything from ancient techniques for decorating fabrics to the use of more modern day yarns produced for novelty type applications. It never ceases to amaze Sara the endless possibilities using as little as 2 harnesses.
Sara attended both Savannah College of Art & Design in Savannah, GA as well as Edinboro University in Edinboro, PA where she completed her Bachelor of Fine Arts and Bachelor of Science in K-12 Art Education with minor in Art History and Anthropology. She has been teaching for nearly 10 years and prides herself in a having broad knowledge spectrum that she attributes to her fine arts and crafts degree. Sara’s ability to communicate well to students who also create works in mediums such as ceramics, glass, printmaking, and painting helps them to integrate those art forms into their fiber arts studies.
