Maria Winner

Fiber Art
 
I love being an artist and it is through an artist’s eyes that I view life. I wonder how I would visually relate what I see. What fibers might capture the texture? What colors will bring it to life? What stitches might reflect the design, movement, or shape? It is through fibers, stitch and humor that I find resolution.
 
I have a fine arts degree in graphic design with a minor in textiles from Portland State University. Following a career as a graphic artist and raising two children, I recently finished a 10 year program, modeled after the British Guilding system, in contemporary embroidery and design. I recently moved to Salem, Ore. In my fiber arts career, I have been published in books and magazines, including “Fiber Arts Now” Magazine and in “500 Felted Pieces”. My work has been in several exhibitions including a solo show. Honors I have received include "Best of Show" at the Chico Art Museum, in CA, and two "First Place" awards at Red Raven Gallery, Fiber Arts Show, Salem OR.
