A few words from Jelina....

I am of Spanish and Malay-Filipino descent and migrated to Australia in 1997 from the Philippines. My art practice focuses in the fields of textile, fibers, wearable art, environmental art and surface design. One of my main goals is to use visual art as a catalyst for community based projects, empowerment and ethical knowledge sharing and economic development.  In 2013 I won the Advantage South Australian Regional Awards in the Arts Category in honor of my outstanding contribution to the creative industries and as a professional visual artist in South Australia. At an International level, my wearable artworks are held in public and private collections in Australia, UK, New Zealand, Canada, USA, Japan, Egypt, Johannesburg, Russia, Sweden, Malta, Taiwan and the Philippines.
