"My creations are somewhat instinctive. Organic. Wild. 

Ideas come to me as I go."

Weaving intuitively is the core of Tininha's creations.

After 13 years working in the swimwear design industry, Tininha discovered a hands-on response to her love for textiles through weaving.

Living in Beautiful Port Townsend, WA, surrounded 

and inspired by the sea and other artistic minds, she feels as if the hidden passion for fibers has always been there, awaiting to emerge. 

Her approach is instinctive, highly textured and organic. Always pursuing what feels right, exploring abstracted shapes of sea life, coral reefs, fishing nets, barnacles, seaweed, and anemones - through needle weaving and knotting.
