Lola is a textile artist and painter.
Lola’s practice works across drawing, painting, sculpture and textiles. Her pieces are inspired by the faces and stories of people she meets. Impressions of these individuals are collected and housed in her memory, waiting for the right moment to be selected for an artwork, enhanced and embellished by Lola’s imagination and style. Working directly onto fabric with paint and pens, her creative process plays with scale, appliqué and stitch, and incorporates African and European printed textiles. Lola’s final artworks are powerful and statuesque, a bold embodiment of their new characters.
