Vanessa first found her love of weaving at the age of 14 while working at a loom in the tower of a medieval castle in Holland. She went on to pursue her art interests in college where she received a Bachelor's Degree in Studio Art from Wake Forest University. Now, Vanessa and her husband homeschool their 5 children and she is very excited to be working with About Color and having the opportunity to fulfill her life-long desire to be a weaver.
Deborah’s love of weaving began when she entered the Boulder Arts and Crafts Cooperative at the age of 18. Having never even seen a loom, a rack of beautifully woven coats located near the front of the shop captured her attention. She knew immediately that she wanted to learn how they were made. Deborah then pursued her study of weaving and art in college and through specialized classes and workshops. More than 13 years later she is now weaving and teaching art and music full time. The work with About Color has given her the opportunity to pursue this love of weaving as part of her occupational work and to glorify God by bringing art and beauty into people’s homes and lives.
