Marta Mouka works with woven silk, often contact-printed with plant material, to make finished textiles with a smooth texture and soft-focus colour transitions. She experiments with centuries-old techniques of dyeing with natural dyes and combines them with the more contemporary method of botanical monoprinting.
Marta's creative process draws inspiration from books, Buddhist philosophy, and daily contact with Ontario’s rural landscape.
