Kaytha Coker Potts - Lufkin, Texas

Kaytha has been in the arts as long as she can remember, though her main focus has shifted over the years from musical theatre to visual arts. She began to jury into art shows a few years back and since then has mostly focused on working in yarn on fabric. Her yarn paintings are inspired by the folk art of the Huichol people of Mexico. Using their idea of "painting" with yarn, She has continued to experiment, explore and expand with the bright colors and textures of yarn (often combined with fabrics, paint and ink) to create her own version of yarn paintings- uniting past and present. She starts with a line drawing, painting in large sections with ink or watercolor. After the ink has dried, she uses a permanent fabric adhesive to lay the yarn out one strand at a time, working in small sections at a time, and moving the yarn around for the desired effect. After the adhesive has set, she often paints on top of the yarn using ink/paint to add detail, depth and value.
