Torina Stark is a textile shape shifter, mixed media artist, writer and teacher. As a lifelong Minnesotan, Torina combines her love of nature with different mediums to create art that challenges the ordinary. Her work is visually-layered creating a sense of how craft and art walk hand-in-hand with nature. When she creates, she draws on her experiences of living immersed in the northwoods of Minnesota to establish a sense that we are firmly connected to and affecting our Earth. Torina uses her art as therapy to cope with her disabilities and also to put her voice into a world that undervalues humans who are not in the traditional workforce.
