Sunday Evening Art Gallery on Wednesday — Ana Teresa Barboza

Ana Teresa Barboza creates colorful embroidery art that depicts natural forms found in plant life and landscapes.

Barboza has been drawn to creating full landscapes with yarn and thread, embroidering large tapestries with rivers, valleys, and waves that spill out from the wall and rest on the floor. 

Born in Lima, Perú in 1980,  Barboza lives and works in her native city.  

Her use of manual crafts became the means to convey a meditative and powerful observation with the environment and her relationship with reality. 

Barboza’s work pushes the boundaries of embroidery by incorporating different disciplines, such as illustration and photography.
