Stuff About Me:

I was raised in a traditional Eritrean household by my Mother and Grandmother. I am a hybrid of ancient tradition and contemporary culture. The women that came before me have clearly influenced the ethical framework of my practice. I work in two directions – repurposing items currently in the product stream so that they have a second life and creating new items that are biodegradable or employ the idea of regenerative design. I want to use my art practice as a vehicle to bring social and environmental change in the areas where it is most needed. Whether it means archiving stories of cross generational identity or nurturing materials that have been marginalized by our throwaway culture.
