TEACHING artist living + working
in Oakland, CA.
Raised on a farm in Western Maryland, Kristin had a childhood that was deeply connected to the earth and the immediate natural resources. Kristin has been working with cloth for over twenty years, and first learned to sew from her grandmother. After years of working in clothing construction, Kristin found a passion for sustainable textiles, and ultimately slow textiles and natural dyes. Every piece of fabric is hand-dyed with a plant color, and every quilt is quilted by hand.
Kristin currently resides in Oakland, California in an urban farmstead, and splits her time between teaching, creating commissioned pieces, and working full time at The Crucible, an industrial arts school in West Oakland.
