BIO: Born in the Central Valley, California, Vicki Fraser moved around the world all her life. Her art education began in Houston, Texas, and intensified in Florence, Italy, at the Academy of Fine Arts. That seat of the Renaissance gave her the love of conservation following the great flood in 1996. She studied embroidery techniques, lacemaking, and learned the skills of rug restoration while living in London. Vicki came to the Mendocino Art Center in 1991 to make her first Earth Rug and found an incredible community of fiber artists whose knowledge and generosity broadened her skills of spinning and natural dyeing and sustained her through her efforts to bring the California Rug to completion.
