Since 1996, Tina Fung Holder has lived and worked in northwest Wisconsin after moving from the urban city life in Chicago. While pursuing her formal education in Chicago, Tina did extensive research in basketry techniques at the Field Museum. Since moving to the north woods she has explored both traditional and new applications of the available natural materials and thinks that anything that grows flexible is fair game. Tina enjoys developing new basket designs and teaching them in workshops. Her basketry is sold in galleries in the region.
