Oona brings a deep love and respect for artistic communication to her work as an artist and art therapist. Oona views the art-making process as an enriching place for imagination, inquiry, empowerment, and relational connection.
Oona’s art practice can be described as ‘textile mark-making’ and in recent years has been informed by her evolving relationship to motherhood. Oona is interested in documenting intimate personal experiences and addressing the (dis)connections we have to our stories by ritualizing the impossibility of returning to the origin of our memories. Her artwork wishes to honour a mother’s lived experience as complex and compelling.
