BIOGRAPHY
Kitty McCarthy began her career as a Textile Designer while pursuing a Master of Fine Arts in Textiles. She taught art at the college level for a number of years. In 1999, she opened a quilt and yarn shop and continued teaching in her own classroom.

After retiring a few years ago, she began traveling and teaching on cruise ships. She has also published a children's book with hand embroidered illustrations. Kitty lives on Virginia's Eastern Shore.
"Like generations of women, I work with my hands using the mediums available. I sew and draw. In the past few years, I've taught myself to work digitally and and expanded the venues for my designs."
