I was born in Lamego, Portugal and I am currently living and working at Oporto.
My first studies were in Fashion Design and then took a Fine Arts Degree in painting at FBAUP, where I am also doing a Master Degree in Drawing and Print Making.
The work I present here is a result of my recent personal research in textiles as an art object. It consists in using painting and engraving on textile in order to find an object that is unique to wear.
The painting and engraving processes are hand made, and impossible to repeat.
I am interested in creating textile pieces that we can easily wear as a complement that transform every look into a personal choice. My inspiration came from an indexical sense of the materials and forms that surround me. Contact : isa@novais.pt
