Gloria Kirk-Hanna grew up along the Oregon Coast a life rich with color and nature.
The fiber artist's family has always been abundantly with painters, sculptors, and writers.
Gloria began her own artistic journey at the age of 5 (painting with her grandmother) and
continued into college exploring drawing, pottery, art history, and quilting.
Quilting was the pathway into the ever growing Fiber Art / Textile world.
She has enjoyed teaching quilt classes in the West Michigan region.
The artist is currently working with hand cut batik fibers on a new self taught exploration
of manipulating her current choice medium. Her exploration pushes weaving and quilting to their limits.
Gloria has spent time in Oregon, Alaska, California, New Jersey, New York, and now
resides in West Michigan expanding her art, and raising her family.
