DESIGNS PRESENTED AGAIN
|I have always knitted! Born in Russia
and growing up in Germany, I can remember knitting all sorts of things from
doll clothes to small garments for myself.
In the early eighties I became a life-time
member of the Torpedo Factory Art Center in Alexandria Virginia. There I
exhibited knitted one-of-a-kind garments and wall hangings. For the Folger
Theater I knitted costumes for Macbeth. At the same time I started teaching
a technique “Creative Knitting” and I continue to the present day.
|I have also knitted two major costumes
for the road show of “CATS”; Deuteronomy and Gus, The Theater Cat. Some of
my knitted garments have been chosen for the movie industry.
|I now enjoy designing for different
publications. I have been a contributor to many knitting books and publications.
As time went on I have added to the courses I teach. I now teach six different
techniques. I show my art-to-wear garments in different boutiques throughout
the United States.
I can not imagine not knitting and I hope to continue to inspire many
more knitters here and abroad.
