Carole Watanabe's past (leading to this romantic present), includes:
Establishing the first nationally recognized Gallery for the Fiber Arts in San Francisco;
Founding the Apprentice Alliance (a non-profit organization dedicated to placing apprentices with masters in all fields of endeavor);
Most importantly a life-long commitment to creating supportive communities that nourish the wild art spirit in all of us.
Her tapestries, sculptural handmade paper works and paintings hang in private collections, hotels, banks, hospitals and corporate offices across the country.
