TAFA launched on January 31st, 2010. This video celebrated its 1st birthday. At 230 members in 23 countries, TAFA was on its way to becoming international, diverse and exceptional.


I've been working with the arts and craft world in many capacities since 1988. Handmade textiles have been my core focus since launching TAFA in 2010.

My hope is to contribute to the economic development potential the arts bring to the world, along with the intrinsic beauty shown in the work. May the world become a friendlier place for artists and nature!

Arrived in Kentucky after a childhood in Brazil, college in Minnesota and 20 years in Chicago. It's been a ride!
