City:

I am an Interdisciplinary artist and designer. My practice is conceptual and wide ranging, often responding to a site, a situation or a place. Research is central to my creative process and I work across, constructed and printed textiles, photography, typography and printmaking. My practice is not restricted by subject, style or process. My aim is to find appropriate ways to communicate  with an intended audience by providing unexpected and highly considered responses. It is my concern with surface both as a mode of communication and as a point of contact between people and their environment gives my practice cohesion. 

This work explores the idea of silence. It came about in response to ‘Heroines’, by Kate Zambreno. ( 5.00 - 14.44  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Al4SR4unHaI ) and is a response to the forgotten, erased and rewritten modernist woman writers. I am drawn to textiles because I believe they have, the capacity to invite a more intimate relationship with the viewer and encourage a sensory response. The work considers textiles as a salient/non-verbal mode of communication. I use the intrinsic qualities of materials and processes to evoke associations, emotions, convey meaning and to align myself within a history of woman’s labour.  Title : Silence   Media : Hair and felt   Dimensions in inches: 13.8 wide X 17.7  high unframed.

There's always tension between our private and our public presence. I explore where these intersect in everyday life. I am interested in the humor that comes from the interconnection and isolation between people as they move throughout their day, as well as the transcendent moments that arise in res...

This picture represent to me a very delicate moment in a woman life: the pre-adolescence. The way Paola is looking at the camera makes me think that she is growing in self-awarness while her shy, younger sister looking at the floor reminds me of the difficulty of accepting that self....

UNITED, 2020,these self-portraits photography is a celebration to diversity.  Yes we are black and yes we are white. Even if we are both so different, born on opposite sides of the planet, we both started from one single cell. This is a pretty simple statement that NO ONE should ever forge...
