Women artisans from MarketPlace: Handwork of India worked with artist Indira Johnson to explore the ways society and culture place restrictions on them and how their inherent strengths can slowly change their perceptions and those of others.

TAFA Profile


I've been working with the arts and craft world in many capacities since 1988. Handmade textiles have been my core focus since launching TAFA in 2010.

My hope is to contribute to the economic development potential the arts bring to the world, along with the intrinsic beauty shown in the work. May the world become a friendlier place for artists and nature!

Arrived in Kentucky after a childhood in Brazil, college in Minnesota and 20 years in Chicago. It's been a ride!
