My formal art training started in 1965 when I went off to "Buff State" ( The State University of New York College at Buffalo WHEW) to study Art Education. My training was broad and shallow and I focused on painting and printmaking and didn't get to take a fibers class until my third year. It has stayed a passion along with the first two ever since. One of the things I liked best about fibers was dyeing and using resists to make a variety of marks and patterns.

I now once again have my own studio and can pursue my interest in using resists to work in layers. I will be blogging about flour paste resist next. Please visit Notes from 207 on Blogger.
