My name is Chris Stitcher - I am DELIGHTED to be in this class. What to write in a bio...... I am retired after 26 years in secondary Biology education and adult substance abuse prevention training and development for community teams. Being a grandmother is more fun than I ever imagined. I'm of average height and always trying to lose weight!
I was labeled "creative" in my family but definitely not "artistic" since I don't draw anything in a recognizable state. As an adult, I once took a class guaranteed to make every student a drawing artist. Hah! Since childhood, I've always had a project of one sort another going. I started making quilts in my early 30's. I was comfortable with the medium since I had sewn since the 7th grade and Jane's first book - Complex Cloth - opened up a whole new world.
I LOVE color and have made my life as colorful as possible - wardrobe, wall colors, etc. But, I don't understand color. I'm hoping to clear that hurdle as this class progresses.
