Vivien Ressler comes to San Diego by way of Cuba, Miami, Venezuela and New York City. As a child, she began using images and drawings to communicate before she learned to speak English. Her art education included interior design school in Venezuela; a B.A. from Hunter College in New York, with a dual major in education and fine arts; the Arts Students League; and The National Academy of Fine Arts.
Pat McNabb Martin is an accomplished art educator, filmmaker, graphic designer and manufacturer/designer of hand painted women’s clothing and accessories. For 18 years she designed and built single family homes on spec in Southern California, where she currently resides. In 2002, Pat returned to painting full time. Martin holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Graphic Design from the University of Illinois in Urbana and a Master of Fine Arts in Painting from the Art Institute of Chicago.
Anne Abendroth took her first floor loom class in the 1970s and never looked back. The complexity of planning, threading, and weaving on the machine was too tempting, and is still intriguing and exciting to her, to explore an ancient craft with new materials, contemporary looms, and computers. About 15 years ago, Anne considered giving up weaving and fibers. Abstract art called to her. Those huge canvases of the Abstract Impressionists and that free flowing paint sounded like such a challenge and downright fun. But with a room full of looms, she hated to throw out 30 years of weaving knowledge. Thus was born the idea of attaching the costumes onto canvas and painting on them.
