maria-theresa fernandes
Maria-Theresa Fernandes was born in Kenya and has lived in the UK and the USA for a number of years.  She currently lives in East London.

Travel and Place have been predominant in her life and work. These life experiences,  journeys, are expressed emotively. The early works  show drawings, etchings and embroideries, that are primarily 2 dimensional.  Since moving to the USA in the 1980’s the works are larger in scale and the installations show a range of works that are influenced by the various National and International residencies.

Re-locating to the UK from the USA after 21years, the work  depicts  the rich cultural diversity of East London.
As a sharp contrast, recent work has been inspired by the Docklands area and the business district of Canary Wharf.
