Dorothy and Andrei started flying kites in 1985, and building them a few years later.
For quite a while Dorothy was content to fly and photograph these skyward art exhibits, then in 2008 she joined Andrei in attending the Fort Worden Kite Makers Conference in Washington State as there was far too many neat kites, and there was no way Andrei could build them all. Now they faithfully attend this annual kitemakers conference.
They enjoy all aspects of building, flying and attending festivals. You meet the neatest, nicest people on the kite field.
Their son, Andrew, attended his 1st kite festival when he was 5 weeks old. Now, at age 18, he enjoys flying single, dual and quadline kites.
