ART • EMBROIDERY • SEWING

Camela Guevara is a fiber artist and painter in Charleston, SC. She creates handmade monuments to unsung labor, as well as expressive paintings in gouache. She has been teaching embroidery for 7 years, and loves to share this lighthearted craft with folks looking for a creative outlet.

She is creating a handmade wardrobe as an alternative to fast fashion retailers. She is committed to making things herself instead of purchasing new items whenever she can. She has exhibited at Greenville Center for Creative Arts, North Charleston City Hall, Virago Gallery, and most recently at Redux Contemporary Art Center for her solo exhibition, Care Work.
