Celina Porter grew up in Taos, New Mexico, surrounded by art and the natural beauty of this mountain valley. She had a passion for flamenco and while working on routines with the yards of skirt, she developed an appreciation for fabric. Celina taught herself to sew and started designing clothes for family and friends.
She attended The Art Institute of California in San Francisco, which allowed her to further develop her desire to master fabric. After college, she worked in the fashion industry, but found that she wanted to learn more about various avenues of art. This desire led her back home to Taos, where she lives today.
Besides her love of fabric and design, Celina enjoys painting, bookmaking and jewelry making. Celina currently lives in SanDiego, is a licensed aesthetician and works at Thérapie Day Spa in Ocean Beach.
