Carol Lee Shanks

Carol Lee Shanks designs and handcrafts clothing and textile art pieces. An integral part of her work is manipulating the cloth to create different surface textures. By layering opaque and transparent elements and then stitching, piercing and wrapping them she is able to transform flat, linear shapes into dimensional silhouettes.

Carol has a degree in Textile and Costume Design from the University of California at Davis. She now works and exhibits her clothing and textile art from her Berkeley, CA studio.
