226. Lys Santamaria

Beads, thread, fabric

Lys Santamaria is best known for her labor-intensive portraits that transform thousands of tiny beads into colorful mosaics. She aims to push beadwork out of the traditional and into new spaces. Santamaria believes that artwork can heal the artist, the viewer and the world. Born in Colombia and raised in Canada/USA, Lys works from her home studio in Austin, TX.
