Bertha Otoya

Bertha Otoya started working in the Creativity Explored studio in 2007, after moving to the United States from Peru. Originally focused on textile work, Otoya used traditional Peruvian techniques to create tapestries and quilts, and enjoyed the repetitive process of sewing. In 2009 her practice grew exponentially as her focus shifted to printmaking. Since stripping her color palette to black and white (occasionally red and blue), her print work has achieved an iconic status and is avidly collected by patrons.
