The name Sun Dragon comes from a recent Christmas present from my nephew, a 9 year old genius with origami. He made everyone individualized origami dragons with descriptions specific to the person. My message read: “if you were a dragon in my origami world I think you would be a sun dragon. Sun dragons are very active and creative.” He recognized my passion for fiber work (I knit or crochet all my gifts and have for years). This message has resonated with me: I have embraced this notion, and wish to make others active, creative individuals as well. Sun Dragon Art & Fiber combines my artistic expertise with my nephew’s passion for art and creativity, offering instruction and supplies in yarn, knitting and crochet notions, paint, origami, papercrafts, adult coloring books, and other artful forms of expression.
Rebecca Smith has been involved in the arts & crafts world her entire life, though has recently moved to make her passion her life's work. She has been a skilled knitter for over a dozen years, with crochet following right behind. Engagement and training in the fine arts dates back to her early years, from art classes to theater set work. For the past 18 years she has been an educator of all age groups in private schools up and down the east coast. For instruction and guidance in all things fiber (yarn) and creativity, look no further!
In every school she has taught at, Rebecca has also had a hand in the technical theater programs, with a concentration in scenic painting. Her years working with art and theater instruction have prepared her well to stock the art supply section of Sun Dragon with a solid range of foundational tools and media.
