Renata Britez is mixed media artist originally from Brazil, She is on her second year in textile program at NBCCD. Her previous experience working in graphic design industry and her interest in printing methods and pattern design lead her to follow the path of surface design. Her goal is to explore traditional printing methods such as block printing, shibori dyeing, and screen printing using natural dyes and fibres.
My current work, entitled Naturallis, is a line of naturally hand-dyed/eco printed locally-sourced reclaimed garments and accessories. Celebrating the beautiful rich colours found in the nature, the collection attempts to bring back traditional natural-dye techniques offering an affordable and environmentally-friendly product.
