I have a Bachelor of Fine Arts, my concentration is embroidery. I enjoy the intimate connection that embroidery creates between the work itself, the viewer, and the artist. My fiber pieces are based around the concept of taking a female object that has been neglected or has become outdated and breathing life back into that object by creating a story about the previous owner visually.
My method of teaching caters to a diverse range of learning styles that benefit overall student understanding. My passion for teaching comes from a love for inspiring my students to create. http://marystarke.weebly.com/student-work.htm
