ABOUT LORELLE 

Lorelle Aboagye is a Handwoven Textile Artist based in London, United Kingdom. She holds a BA in Illustration and MA in Textile Design.  


Lorelle’s contemporary hand-crafted wovens are influenced by her travels,  material culture, social history and indigenous crafts of Ghana. They are developed in an organic, spiritual-led manner with a focus on narrative, sustainability, and experimentation. Her body of work reflects her interest in the research and documentation of identity, migration narratives, rituals, tradition, and home.
