Chris Acton, owner of Acton Creative

Born in central Illinois, Christine (Chris) Acton was raised in the Midwest by a family of avid crafters and musicians. From her grandmother (the 1950’s Home Economics Goddess) to her Aunt Laura (craft store owner), Chris developed a love for all things made with pipe cleaners and googly eyes at a very young age.

Educated in Interior Design and Music Performance at Indiana University, Chris was educated in fine arts and then led a successful career in Interior Design/Space Planning for the next 13 years.

Throughout this journey, she continued to be called to fiber arts and crafts. In 2005, she took her first weaving class and found her footing as an artist. In 2008, she left the corporate world to pursue her art full time, founding Acton Creative, LLC. Her work has been featured in Fiber Arts Magazine and in galleries across the US.

Today, Chris is based in Northwest Indiana at the base of Lake Michigan, where she is active in the local weavers guild and a number of creativity groups.

A Letter from Chris

Hello!

I’m so glad you dropped into the Acton Creative website! Stay as long as you like! While I can’t offer you a cookie & a hot beverage, I can provide you with lots of gorgeous handwoven eye candy!

Each handwoven piece contains my deep-seated love of interacting colors, my delight in rhythmic patterns, my curiosity with different textures, and my forever fascination with the ancient craft of weaving! Please enjoy!
