Cynara de Goutiere, a fibre artist, painter and illustrator, makes her home with partner and musical instrument maker, Rob Moore, in the Cowichan Valley on Vancouver Island, British Columbia, where she gives voice to her creativity through fabric sculpture, fiber/papier mache, painting and fiber arts media.
