Maria-Theresa Fernandes

Born to East Indian parents in Kenya and educated in Manchester and London, England,
fiber artist Maria-Theresa Fernandes has been awarded over 40 artist residencies in the
United State and abroad, including Marnay-Sur-Seine, France. Her works are inspired
by landscapes where she has traveled and worked. Fernandes employs layering to
provide density of surface and dimension. Her use of rich colour creates mood and
expression. In some pieces, digital images have been transferred to cloth, and then
manipulated with stitchery to give form and depth to the surface. The materials she uses
are indicative of the parts of the world that they portray. Works chosen for exhibit
exemplify Fernandes’ responses to landscape, people and cultures, both ancient and
modern.
