Rebecca Maidman

Fiber Artist

Charter Member

Creativity has always been Rebecca Maidman's  passion. 

 

Background

Learning to knit at an early age, Rebecca has evolved from knitter to artist. In 1985 she started selling her knitwear at art shows. Then in 2000 she began selling hand knit scarves at the Truckee and Tahoe City Farmers Markets. She continues to display her expanded line of accessories there and also can be seen at many of the local art shows. She is an original member of Mountain Arts Collective

Artistic Process

Searching out the variety of wool and yarn available on the world market dictates the type of wearable art Rebecca will create. Alpaca, Cashmere, Marino Wool and Silk are just some of the fibers used with varying stitches and patterns to make the feel of her work a pleasure to

the touch.

Vision/Inspiration

Rebecca knits to create beautiful wearable art that people will enjoy as much as she enjoys creating her accessory line. Shawls, ponchos, scarves, hats, neck warmers and gloves are some of what you will find at Mountain Arts Collective
