Esch-sur-Alzette, Luxembourg


Portuguese, born in Mozambique and currently residing in Luxembourg, Sandra studied Philosophy at the University of Coimbra in Portugal while also exploring Theatre. After graduating in 1997, she embarked on a career in the performing arts before moving to Luxembourg in 2005. Her journey with textiles began later, as she honed her skills through self-teaching and workshops with other artists. Specializing in tapestry weaving, she also incorporates embroidery, crochet, and latch hook techniques. Utilizing natural, recycled and reused fibres, including discarded upholstery fabrics, her work often features natural elements, like branches and flowers.


After my experience in theatre, I naturally continue to work with emotions through textile art, which, like theatre, constructs narratives and evokes tension. I'm interested in the complexity of human identity and inspired by the beauty of imperfect things.

In my work, I seek to infuse poetry into materials, weaving landscapes with imbalances and obstacles that are also present in human communication. Through the textile medium, I discover liberation in gesture: my hands feel, think, and act. Textiles become records of memory.
