Grace Marks: Weaving to her heart's content

Grace Marks: The Hand of Grace

As a weaver, I believe that the textiles we use everyday should be as beautiful as they are useful. I combine color and pattern with texture to create artistic pieces durable enough to use everyday. Each item is unique, while some may be similar in color and pattern. I always insert a slight variation that keeps my interest while weaving a project and also offers you a one-of-a-kind piece.

I studied Fiber Arts at Kutztown University, graduating with a Bachelor’s degree in Crafts. My studies gave me a firm foundation in technique and a background in creativity, design,and history.

Married to my wonderful husband Timothy, I work in my home studio while raising my two young sons, Caleb and Matthew. Family comes first, and I am privileged to be home to raise my children. The few quiet moments I have during this busy season are spent in my studio where I weave to my heart’s content and let the creative juices flow!
