FEATURED ARTISTS:

Zelda Grant

"I was born to create. From a young child, I remember how things with lots of texture felt as I continually stroked my little hands across them."

A memorial to our sister Zelda Grant, who was a self-taught fabric artist with an eye for manipulating colors, textures and designs. She had the ability to craft whatever her mind conceived.
