My name is Ronella Gomez and I love working with textiles and story telling. I strongly value living an ethical and sustainable life. And I am motivated by the role art plays in communicating important ideas.
I share my life with my husband, six-year-old son and three-year-old daughter in Melbourne, where I work from home in all senses of the word. This is where I research ideas and apply them to my visual art, writing and family life.
I am particularly interested in a closed-loop approach to all manner of making. I have been curating a selection of upcycled, recycled, ethical and sustainable materials to use. While this has narrowed my conventional options considerably, it has motivated me to experiment with traditional techniques and question my assumptions around the embedded value in resources.
Telling Tales materialises whilst I try to weave tricky ideas into the fabric of life and things.
