Faculty: Ardath Finnbogason-Hill
Ardath Finnbogason-Hill believes that we are all creative "Be-ings" and she loves to experience the discovery or rediscovery of hidden talents of those who participate in her workshops. As a creative processor, her experimentation with fibres, textures, colours and techniques has been evolving for many years. Ardath's knitted garments have been described as fanciful, elegantly beautiful. Her Icelandic heritage, relationships, readings, travels, women's circles, and spiritual journey have all influenced her artwork. Her creations have been displayed at numerous art shows, and her commissioned pieces are seen in several countries. One highlight was the creation of a wrap entitled Fire Ice and Mother Sea for the first woman President of Iceland. In her writing, painting and fibre art, there is a story or a message of empowerment or inspiration. Ardath's background as nurse educator/ counsellor and her many years of facilitating creative process workshops combine with her enthusiasm to create an environment conducive to self-discovery.
