Elizabeth Drake's Profile

About

I guess I have been a frustrated artist all my life. I spent 40+ years working behind a keyboard (starting with a Selectric typewriter). Now, I find myself with an affinity for fiber. I love working with all kinds of fiber. Spinning, knitting, weaving, you name it, I love it. I especially love dyeing it. You never really know what you are going to end up with because you can take the same fiber and work it differently and get different results. This is never static and never (that 4 letter word) WORK. It is more like playing than anything. I love especially the "what if" when creating new colors and combinations of fibers.
