About me
Isabella grew up with a professional dancer, watching her perform and being engulfed in a costume, texture and light, emphasised, for her, the necessity of the viewers experience and participation. Studying the process and production of textiles provided the foundation to be able to interrogate the relationship between structure, yarn, colour and material.
