Willow Star Wright
Willow Wright, a Verde Valley native, has always enjoyed working with her hands. She studied a variety of arts, including jewelry, ceramics, sculpture, painting, and fiber arts, even working as a paint instructor for Create a Canvas Mobile Art Studio.
Though she majored in American Sign Language Interpreting in college she always found time for art classes. Now she combines the movement of sign language and her love of plants to weave her creations into macrame hangers.
She incorporates native woods like algerita, manzanita, and mesquite or found objects like driftwood and seashells, crystals, rocks, and stones into her macrame. This is the perfect excuse for Willow to visit beautiful places around the world as inspiration for her art while finding just the right accoutrements to adorn her hangings.
