Hello, and thanks for the comment & for the birthday wishes. A fiber artist is someone who uses fiber for creative expression. And fiber itself can mean anything from a tattered Kleenex to the finest Navaho woven rug. It includes all types of fabric and yarn, string, paper, and the manipulation of it to create "art," however broadly you want to interpret that term. One of the main reasons I'm so drawn to fiber is because it's so tactile.. it begs to be touched, pulled apart, altered, then put back together again. Mostly I like to mix other media into the fiber elements, such as art quilts (keeping in mind that "quilt" is defined as anything with 2 outer layefs with a filler layer sandwiched between them. Think Oreo cookie...only with fiber). Anyway, that's my loose definition of fibert art, so hope it's helpful.
I picked Avatar the Great for two or three reasons
1> I love the movie Wizards and the anti-war anti-propaganda message.
2> The Green with a star is kind of like Esperantos flag / logo http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Esperanto
3> Avatar is the good guy. I like how he uses technology in the end too.
