Convergence: Work by Canadian and U.S. Women Artists

Nan Renbarger
• fiber • mixed media (hand-painted fabric)
fiber, mostly cotton and silk fabric that I hand paint
or dye and embellish with threads of various weights

Overbrook, Kansas

My education has been informal and self directed. I’ve attended classes at the
Lawrence Arts Center and have participated in workshops at the University of
Minnesota at Duluth, Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts, and Surface Design
Association conferences and any other opportunity that arises. I’ve read and
studied most of the books about fiber arts available in the public library and
I’ve purchased and studied umpteen books about surface design techniques.

A valuable source of my education has been teaching surface design at the
Lawrence Arts Center attempting to stay one step ahead of my students.

I am bewitched by the trek as discoveries along the way entice, humble,
and charm me. An amalgam of what I see, feel, hear, and sense flows through
through my fingers, out onto the physical plane via fibers of every description.
