TINTAWI

Artist. Creator. Visionary.

Since my childhood, I’ve been experimenting and developing my skills and processes. My mother sews, my grandmother crocheted, my great-grandmother, painted and quilted, and my aunt is a costume designer/stylist. I find inspiration everywhere I look... sometimes my process is getting close to the earth to see from the perspective of a four-legged creature. On other occasions it's surrounding myself with creative folk, or the complete opposite, becoming the hermit. Life, creation, spirit, my ancestors, the full cipher, and all of the elements that exist within and around those concepts inspire me.
