Gail Pate's Profile

About

I have always loved textiles - the colors, patterns, the textures and feel of the fabric. Years ago I quilted and sewed, but gradually moved into other crafts like metalworking and jewelry. Natural materials are always what I look for - so I began to use sari silk & silk ribbon in some of my jewelry, rekindling a love for fabric. Refocusing on fibers, I began dyeing silks and wools and felting into wearable art and decorative pieces. I am a mostly self-taught artist, and I believe that the path I follow in learning & growing my craft brings not only many trials and errors, but some very wonderful and unexpected successes. My creations come from my soul, and I share them with you.
I have two other shops on Etsy, check them out!
