About

Galadriel is a visual artist from an unspecific background. She was born in Spain, raised in Kenya and lived all over so that makes it a little bit difficult to decide which place to call home. 

She works in a variety of mediums, leading a nomadic life and constantly pushing herself into new situations in order to evolve. Her key concept is as simple as 'I thought it should exist, so I made it.' This may seem erratic, but with an ongoing theme of responding to the environment by creating various creatures of dreams, it can be read as a blind process of introspection and self-portraiture, not really sure where it is going but following the road anyways to see if it ends.
