GINNY KING grew up in Blacksburg, Va. and now lives in Port Townsend, Washington with two black Chihuahuas. She is an accomplished and enthusiastic crafts person; an avid doll maker, fiber surface designer, screen printer, seamstress, paper crafter (cards, journals and books), oil painter and fan of all things made with license plates and cookie tins. Students describe her workshops as “big fun,” “results I never dared hope for,” “inspiring,” and “a leap to a new avocation.” She'll be teaching a class in art cloth surface design this winter.
