Rami Kim

Rami Kim is a DNA scientist-turned fabric
artist/quilter/instructor known nationally and
internationally for her distinctive color use and
techniques. This 18-time Best of Show winner
is also distinguished for her innovative art-towear.
Rami’s passion is in contemporary art-towear,
quilts, cloth dolls, and bags with a special
interest in three-dimensional textures. Her
first book, Folded Fabric Elegance, published
by AQS in 2007, is about her 3-D texturing
techniques and new projects. Her second
book, Quilted Elegance, also published by AQS
(2009), focuses on reversible wearable arts,
bags, and two-sided quilts. The third and most
recent book, Elegant Cotton, Wool, Silk Quilts,
was published in 2012.

Rami graduated from Seoul National University,
majoring in chemistry, and from the University
of California, San Francisco (UCSF), majoring
in endocrinology. She worked at the Cancer
Research Institute at UCSF before her passion
and talent for fabric art drastically changed this
biochemist’s career years ago. “I’d rather spend
more time with beautiful fabrics and threads
and beads than with the DNA sequencing gels
and radioactive isotopes of cold, gray science,”
she says.

At her website,, you’ll
find information on upcoming workshops,
lectures, and trunk shows hosted by Rami, as
well as a gallery of her art.
