Mira Talbott-Pope | Wearables

After 30 years of living and working in the Chico/ and Cohasset area, I moved to Guatemala in 2008 and have had my workshop there every since. What a pleasure to find myself able to weave my love of Guatemalan textiles and painting with the art and social ambience of Chico with coming to the Art at the Matador event for 4 years or so and now to the new venue Chico ART Festival.
