Liz Alpert Fay earned a degree in Textile Design from the Program in Artisanry at Boston University, and then spent seventeen years creating art quilts, exhibiting nationally and in Japan. In 1998 Liz became intrigued with the technique of traditional rug hooking and since then has been creating contemporary works of her own design. These pieces are selected for juried shows, invitational museum exhibitions and purchased for private collections. From 2001-2014 Liz actively promoted innovation in the hooked art of contemporary artists and produced annual juried shows. Early in her career she earned the title of Master Teaching Artist through the State of Connecticut, and for many years has been giving classes in the textile arts.
