Bio

 
  

Liz Hamilton has always had a strong interest in fiber.  While attending Kutztown University for a bachelor’s degree in Art Education, she rediscovered her passion for the manipulation of fabric.  Quickly, she adopted a second major in Craft to continue to delve into fiber as a sculptural means.   She then followed that passion to earn an MFA at the Tyler School of Arts in Philadelphia in Fibers and Material Studies.  While attending, she worked as a T/A for the Fiber's department, assisting in multiple classes such as Silkscreen on Fabric, Surface Design, and Alternative Materials.  Along with her duties, she flourished as the Instructor of Record for the Non-BFA Intro to Fibers course.  Understanding that art teaching is her passion, she continues to seek out opportunities to share her knowledge and expand creativity. 

 

Today, Liz resides in Philadelphia and is driven to work toward a diverse portfolio that incorporates and questions many disciplines from the perspective of a fiber artist.
