My name is Kimberly Baxter Packwood. I live out on the edge of the western prairie and the beginnings of the eastern plains. My art work, use of dye materials, fabrics and fibers all revolve around my connection to the land and to the sky that dominates life out here.
I use natural materials and processes to demonstrate the progression of the native prairie from its ancient origins to the present through color, texture and form. When working with natural dyes, Ocher's, Earth pigments, and rust on cloth I am able to explore the tension between the natural and the unnatural (man made).
Thank you for visiting. ~ Kimberly
