Cara Romano

After earning a BFA from the University of Maine in 2002 Romano went onto participate in a traditional internship with master Metalsmith, Curtis K. LaFollette in Cherryfield Maine. LaFollette’s wife, Marion was a weaver who taught Romano the rich traditions of textiles and fiber. Romano’s work transformed into a combination of both their mediums incorporating ancient textile techniques into her metal work. Currently Romano shares a studio/ gallery space in Ellsworth Maine and participates in national juried exhibitions and American Craft Shows around the country. She currently serves as the President of the Maine Crafts Association.
