Meet Rami Kim


Rami Kim is a DNA scientist turned fabric artist/quilter/instructor known nationally and internationally. She is a 17-time Best of Show winner, distinguished for her innovative art-to-wear.

Her passion is in contemporary art-to-wear, quilts, cloth dolls, and bags, with special interest in three-dimensional textures. Rami is known for her own distinctive colors and techniques. Her first book, Folded Fabric Elegance, published by AQS, is about her 3-D texturing techniques and new projects. Her recent book with AQS is Elegant Cotton Wool  Silk Quilts.

She graduated from University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) majoring in endocrinology and worked at the Cancer Research Institute at UCSF before her passion and talent in fabric art drastically changed this biochemist’s career years ago.

She says she’d rather spend even more time with beautiful fabrics and threads and beads than with DNA sequencing gels and radioactive isotopes of cold, gray science.
