Wilmington papermarker and artist Fritzi Huber was born in Houston, Texas into a family of circus performers. Her mother and father were a trapeze act known as “The Sensational Kays.” She studied the visual arts at Palomar College and the University of Houston, as well as received private tutelage from fellow artists Lee Scott McDonald, Bob Nugent, and Don Farnsworth. Her early career was marked as a seamstress until she moved to Southern California and befriended papermaker Sherril Cunning, who encouraged Fritzi to learn how to make her own paper for her art. Throughout her career, she participated in numerous exhibitions showcasing her art and was selected for dozens of public commissions and collections. She has given several lectures, demonstrations, and workshops at universities and art centers across the country and abroad.
