Cindy Paul is a fiber artist and Cheyenne resident. She states;”I started quilting in 1996. I very quickly realized I had a difficult time creating a master plan and sticking with it. This journey has stimulated my interest in all types of fiber and every possible combination. I enjoy creating as I go and many times I am surprised with the end results. I love all things shinny or textured. I’m fascinated with Asian and African fabric and the techniques used to create their most beautiful piece”.
Beth Rulli is proud to be a dumpster diver!”Dumpster Glass is recycled, flat glass that I have painted with glass enamels and fired over a mold in my kiln. I use all kinds of glass on its way to the landfill: windows, storm windows, factory reject bevels and scrap art glass (clear and colored). I even use small mirrors after their silvery paint backings are removed. When I took my first glass painting class in 1993, I knew I had found my niche. I quit my day job as a reference librarian in 1995, and opened the Indian Paintbrush Studio in Cheyenne. Dumpster Glass originated in 2006, and has been evolving ever since.”
