Dreamstones for the Planet
Royal College of Art
Roberta is an interdisciplinary environmental researcher, artist and activist.
Roberta’s textiles practice is dedicated to the healing and repair of our relationship to the earth. Creating mixed media textiles installations that include sculpture, print and hung pieces, her work incorporates a variety of textiles processes and techniques. She uses specially developed natural dyes, including printing pastes, combining these with organic fibres, family heirlooms, discarded fabrics and waste materials. Imagining a better future where our ecosystems are no longer depleting, her work seeks to educate people on the climate crisis through a visual narrative, encouraging the restoration of balance between humans and nature.
