Amsa Yaro is a Mixed Media artist who made the switch from journalism. Though she has been making and designing jewelry for over 7 seven years, she finally took the leap to make more than wearable art.
Using sculpture and mixed media, she has created works that stem from the inspiration she gathers from the culture of her home country, Nigeria, Television and the environment. Her choice of paper as a medium came from observing the versatility of paper and how it can be used in different forms such as clay and manipulated as fabric.
Yaro has been a part of several vendor events which include Sunfest and Home County Festival and Earth Day Pop Up Market, London, Ont. She was also part of the 2017 London Culture Days London, Ontario, where she exhibited her artwork titled “Nothing New Under The Sun”. She has also participated in many Exhibitions which include “Hip to Be Square” and most recently, the 2019 Life As A Refugee Event Silent Auction organised by the London Cross Cultural Learner Center.
She lives with her Husband in London, Ontario and teaches a variety of art classes at the For The Love Of Art Center.
