Almudena Rocca is a multi-disciplinary artist. In the last few years she has been developing her skills using a variety of materials including metal, glass, clay, wood, digital photography, pen and pencil. Often her designs will start with a continuous line drawing and then develop into a piece of 3D work. Inspiration comes from a very personal interest in mental ill health, politics, feminism and the role of women in art in today’s society.
Having worked in a number of socially engaging art projects where practice is based on the principles of collective working, diversity and inclusion Almudena has come to realise that this is the environment in which she wishes to develop her work. An environment where sharing and collaboration of an arts practice contributes to mental ill health recovery and emotional good health and well-being.
Almudena has already designed and sold a number of illustrations that are now exhibited in a space used to support young women living with anorexia and bulimia.
Almudena is currently working with a number of businesses both here and in America that create clothing that carry positive messages of mental wellbeing. Her designs have been used on sweatshirts, T-shirts and caps. In the future she hopes to develop her own brand of clothing with her illustrations and designs.
