Job Title: Master Artist, Textile Designer, Tattoo Artist Apprentice
Where: Quaker Fabric Corporation, Fall River, Massachusetts
Years of Experience: 8
Education: BFA in Textile Design/Fiber Arts

The fabric is then used by furniture makers to upholster couches and chairs. So I guess one measure of success for me as a textile designer could be the number of people that sit on my work.
