CHRISTINA HESFORD - HANDWEAVER
Christina Hesford is a textile artist who uses textile processes, such as weaving and knotting, to make art objects and wall-based artworks. Growing up in Indonesia and Brazil has given her a keen awareness of the commonality and individuality of humans, and so she makes work about being human: the spectrum of the human condition.
She makes work for galleries, public, and private spaces. She also makes site-specific installation works, undertakes commissions, writes for publication, gives talks about her practice, and teaches drawing and weaving workshops.
