banner-970x90f

Who is Billie Zangewa and what do you do?

I am a visual artist working with raw silk.

How would you define your style or art?

I call it silk tapestry but its really textile collage. Tapestry, because of the stories that my works tell.

What inspires your work?

Personal experiences. emotions, the urban landscape. My son.

What are you currently working on?

I’m currently working on a body of work called The Final Frontier. They tell the story of a woman – me – and her experiences in the urban setting.

What advice would you give young creatives looking to do what you do?

Firstly make sure that your motives are good and solid and then stay focussed and work hard.
