About the Artist

Jamie Lyn Kara was born in the beautiful Hudson Valley, 75 miles north of New York City where she grew up making mud-pies and leaf-burritos. She traveled with her family throughout the Northeast, developing a love for new places and experiences. This led her to pursue a BFA in Fibers from Savannah College of Art and Design where she could express her excitement for the world in a hands-on and visual way. While studying at SCAD, Jamie traveled coast-to-coast absorbing inspiration, collecting materials, and digging in the dirt while working on a feCw organic farms. This experience helped strengthen her sense of place and shape her work, which includes lots of stitching and the use of many re-purposed materials. Jamie also enjoys working collaboratively, dreaming up new ideas and designs.

Class Fee is $100.00
