M K Silks
I have worked as a fiber artist for 30 years. Beginning as a flat pattern textile designer, I was always very interested in how cloth was made but knew nothing about it. I apprenticed to a master weaver and learned how to make coverlets and other historic textiles.
My work changed when I began working mainly in silk and, using my training as a painter, taught myself to dye yarn. I still love antique and historic textiles, but now color and a contemporary palette has become the focus of my weaving.
