SAMIA KHALAF TOSSIO
My approach is playfully creative. I combine doodle art with finger-knitted apparel by hand-making buttons using my doodle designs. I knit using only my fingers, working with both acrylic and cotton yarns to create unique hand-crafted items. As a Community Artist, I have been seen getting crafty at WOMAD, London Games Festival, and Milton Keynes Gallery, and am currently running my project, A Good Yarn, combining finger-knitting with storytelling to enable effortless connection. This has led me to work with the most isolated and vulnerable people in our society, the homeless. My aim: ‘inspire & share through creative communication’.
