Based on Tybee Island, GA, Pamela Wiley (Professor emerita of fibers) is heavily influenced by her natural surroundings. She has worked as a studio artist producing lines of hand-dyed fabric and kimonos; as a freelance textile designer/design consultant in New York City; as a stylist in the New York ribbon and trim industry; as a freelance designer for Anthropologie; and as a prop designer/fabricator for Broadway shows. In the South of France, she taught in the Savannah College of Art and Design's premier residency art studio program in Lacoste. Retired, Wiley now pursues her love of all things textile-based and thread-enhanced while investigating the social, cultural and personal potential of cloth.
