Chris Carpenter

Dyer/Painter

First season at OSF: 2000

I'm the painter/dyer for the costume shop. This means lots of color matching of fabrics as well as several types of printing. Plus there is the actual destruction of costumes, politely referred to as "distressing." 

Other theatres: San Francisco Opera, Old Globe Theatre, Guthrie, Berkeley Repertory, ACT, Goodman. Education: BA, fine arts, Indiana University; MFA, printed/dyed textiles, Southern Illinois University.
