Artwork by Ursula Populoh
Can you tell us a little bit about the work that you do in your studio?
Costume design, piecework and appliqué, embroidery, quilting, painting
What drew you to the medium(s) that you are currently working with?
Any medium with which I work is recycled, salvaged or has been reclaimed. It is an important part of my work to demonstrate with my art that there is plenty of material available for any piece of art if one looks at material differently. Previously used items can be seen as a treasure to be worthwhile to be reworked or to be thrown out. My look at things is the ‘treasure’ look. I love giving new life to textiles in any form possible.
What is something that you think is unique about your studio or practice?
I am using only recycled, previously used and reused, mended material.
