Celebrated as one of the biggest names in textile art, Sheila Hicks has a long history of studying ancient techniques and cultures. She has traveled through the continents researching and developing her craft which expands from weaving and sculpture to installations and much, much more.
Sheila Hicks (b. 1934) began her career as an art student at the Yale School of Art in the 1950s. There she had classes with ex-Bauhaus teacher Josef Albers, who trained her on the use and impact of color, and with George Kubler, an influential scholar whose studies about pre-Columbian art nurtured her interest in ancient cultures.
