Meet Your Representative Gene Looman

I have been creating all my life in one way or another. I started sewing by hand when I was 4 years old. At the age of 5 I discovered the sewing machine and have used one to create for the last 43 years. My preferred medium is fiber, I am a fiber obsessed man! In my earlier years I would wander away from fiber and tried other mediums, I always returned to fiber. Working in fiber makes by brain and soul happy.  I discovered in my late twenties that besides the usual food, water and air to live I also require creating to live. Besides creating fiber art I also thoroughly enjoy teaching others and encouraging people to discover their own voice while creating. 

In April of 2016 I finally accepted the fact that I am an artist. When I finally realized that and shared my new found insight to those around me they all just looked at me and said “duh”. I am enjoying my continued journey into becoming the artist that I should be.
