Abraham’s fiber journey began when he was 8 years old and was given a bottle baby Angora goat.  As the goat grew, so did the goat's mohair, and Abraham became enamored by the fiber.  Abraham soon learned how to spin, and his fascination with fibers has never ceased.  He learned how to knit, crochet, weave, felt and dye which led him deeper into the world of art and design.  Abraham received wise counsel as a member of the Weavers Guild of Greater Kansas City; and aimed to share and promote the fiber arts through local school and 4-H events.  Abraham expanded his study of textiles at the College for Creative Studies where he received a degree in Fiber and Textile Design in 2018.  Abraham gained additional knowledge and skills through different internships and assistantships focusing on textiles. Brentano Fabrics hired Abraham in the fall of 2018 and promoted him to Textile Designer in 2019.  Abraham balances his life between working in the textile industry and maintaining a craft practice at home.  His artwork often explores the many qualities related to the human experience and aims to portray narratives involving the physical and spiritual being.
