April Rivers-Locke (B.F.A., fibers, 2011), is a fibers artist and owner of the brick and mortar store The Humble Life, which carries handmade items from artists and small businesses, as well as her family line of all-natural bath and body-care products called Humblelove. Rivers-Locke believes every stitch has a chain of thought attached, every loop a memory, and every line a conversation. Her work reflects this concept, not only in the visual layers and lines, but in the time her pieces take to develop. She hopes to inspire others to create a life built on layers of memories filled with experiences and the people they cherish. Her store is located in Caldwell, Texas.
