Biography & Artist's Statements

Mary Hertert started Color Creek-Fiber Art in September of 1997 in Anchorage, Alaska serving the Fiber Arts community through teaching, open-studio time and sharing of all that is fiber and dye with Alaskans. Since that time the equivalent of several thousand people of all ages and backgrounds have been exposed to the wonders of putting dye on fabric.

Mary leaves artwork in Alaska at the Alaska Fiber Festival where it will be on display through each of the festivals; at the Providence Medical Center in Anchorage-Children's Hospital and the new Cancer Wing; at Wonderpark Elementary and in private collections.

She was also principle dyer for the Alaskan Dance Theater, Cyrano's Community Theater and many private people who just wanted to change the color of their clothes.

Mary left Alaska in April 2011 for Fruita, Colorado where she expects to continue her tradition of inviting everyone who wishes to dip their fingers into the Color Creek experience.
