"My name is Nicole Metzger and all my artwork is under the name MetzgerStudios.
I grew up in the tiny town of Maryfield Saskatchewan, Canada and moved to Brandon Manitoba, Canada when I was eighteen. The purpose of the move was to go to university to take a business degree.
Although I am now finished my degree in something completely different from the arts I have ALWAYS been driven by creativity and artwork. I have had a passion for painting for many years now! I believe in doing the things I love and what makes me happy even though my life has taken a different path from this. I am now 26 years old and a full time CA and also an artist!
Most of my artwork is modern/abstract style with lots of texture and dimension."

Our goal is to strengthen these connections while drawing ever more people into the wonderful world of fibre. What better reason for a festival!
