The Purple Pomegranate, a fine craft specialty store, is featuring work by Mission Valley artist, Judith Colvin during the month of September. Judith is a fiber artist working with natural colors, dyes, and images using a process called eco printing.
Judith has lived on a ranch in the beautiful Mission Valley for over 25 years, where she raised Shetland and Bluefaced Leicester sheep. Her interest in sheep led her into fiber arts nearly 30 years ago and about 10 years ago she discovered her passion for felting. Judith has traveled all over the country to study with both national and international felting instructors.especially appreciates the sustainability of natural fibers and the endless variety of items that can be made with wool, silk and other fibers. She loves the fact that there is so much more to learn, and enjoys the process of experimenting with new techniques to incorporate them into her work.
Meet Judith during Whitefish Gallery Night, Thursday, September 1, 2016 from 6-9 PM. Judith’s work will be displayed during the opening and throughout the month of September.
