Welcome to the blog for Apiana Que! this is where i can keep anyone interested about the happenings in my journey of exploration of arts and crafts.
so my name is Ashley and i have been working on the creation of Apiana Que for about a year now, and everyday it is growing to include many more ideas and creations. I am currently a student at the Alberta college of art + design going into my third year, my first year as a fibre major.
what is fibre you ask? its all about art with fabrics and textiles and other mediums that may include these. Yes, fibre can include fashion but that is not all. Fibre art has been seen as highly political and often, feminist, I see it however as an expression (just like all art forms) which is quite often viewed as comforting and humorous.
I myself, am quite interested silkscreening as well as the wearable aspects of fibre and plan to go to a fashion school in Milan Italy once i have graduated from ACAD. i believe that fashion should not just be about creating fashion, but that it should be rooted in art. Therefore i will be trying to keep myself connected to the status of artist as well as a career in fashion.
so I've created this blog so that you can follow me as i explore my own creativity, as well as things i just find interesting. This summer i have many things lined up and want to be able to share it with all that are interested.
so thank you for your time, and enjoy!
