Theodora Prassa is an artist, and educator who is based in Nottingham. Her practice explores narration, identity and interruption of meaning taking place with migration.

She embraces printmaking traditional processes. Through photography, she works with handmade and digital collages. Repetition is often identified in her work through patterns, and textures.

Her work also, borrows urban forms from public space and reinterprets them in new compositions, creating a series of abstract landscapes that provoke different viewpoints.

Theodora is passionate about sharing knowledge and reaching people and communities through creative formats with art.
