My weaving journey started 10 years ago. My passion for weaving took me to many corners of the world, sitting with indigenous women in weaving circles and learning their ways of weaving and being.
Today I’m a full-time weaver, selling my art on the street & running weaving workshops around the country. I’m also the founder of the cooperative Tali Tali. A cooperative that works with women from remote pacific islands to revive the ancient art of weaving and empower women through their traditional crafts. Check out talitali.org
