Meet the Artists

The Purple Shack Makers Gallery features 20 artists from Fredericksburg and beyond. Meet them below!

Gene Looman

Gene loves color and his work consists of functional and decorative pieces of fiber art using fabric, thread, and various other fibers. He creates art with bright colors and it reflects a happy and joyous vibe. 

We have his cork purses and clutches, refillable journal covers, triangle bags, and bookmarks in the Purple Shack Makers Gallery.

Gene's studio name is Looney Hues which translates to crazy colors. He keeps his art as accessible as possible by creating a broad spectrum of pieces. These range from inexpensive bookmarks to high-dollar wall fiber art.

You can find Gene at, Instagram @looneyhues and Facebook @looney-hues.
