Sally Raskoff. Fiber Artist.

Expressing oneself through an artistic pursuit is a most important human activity. I see it as necessary for life, not just something we do if we have the time or resources.

Since taking my first weaving class on a table loom in 1999, I realized that I had been 'weaving' since childhood. Those first projects in macramé and on my pot holder and bead looms set in motion dynamics that have flourished.

Now, in the twenty-first century, I weave, spin, braid, knot, coil, ply-split, bead, dye, and basically find ways to put together fibers and other materials to express my response to the natural and social worlds in which I live. And, I still do macramé

Being a technology nerd from way back, I also use photography to inspire, complement, and accentuate my fiber creations.

Life is a journey but we must be sure to take the trip!
