Darin Alexander

As a youngster I lived in the country or outskirts of towns, enjoying the pleasures of exploring natural wonders. My parents were famous for taking us on back-country excursions camping, hiking, and 4wheeling. Travel to various states and National Parks were always a treat and set a positive tone for my passions in life. A cousin told me about a Photography program at a college in Wyoming near Yellowstone and I opted to return to college for a career adjustment. The timing worked out well for gaining experience on the digital wave while still gaining the full range of traditional film processing. The college provided opportunities for work-study with area organizations directly relating to my interests in history and landscapes which led to internships and subsequent employment to set up the first digital photography project for a world-class museum. An opportunity to teach photography landed me in northern New England where I had opportunity to further my interests in history while learning more about twisting cordage and rope which are key to my pursuits as a fiber artist and educator. In 2001 I launched my own company, ArtCords, as a vehicle to grow the public education of horse and mule cinches and girths which had informally begun in 1992. The challenges of processing genuine natural fibers from fiber to completed functional products have kept many of us quite engaged in experimenting and prototyping to help Equine owners have increased access to the comfort and durable items of centuries past. The sale of items here benefit our efforts to grow the natural fiber cordage availability for hobbyists and those who are finding it a relaxing, therapeutic benefit in their individual situations.
