Gianna is currently based between hemispheres
on Tongva Land in Los Angeles, CA and unceded 
Darug Land in Sydney Australia

Gianna Christella Hayes is a multidisciplinary artist, archivist, facilitator, land tender, medicine maker and researcher working alongside earth pigments, textiles, photography and film. Her cross disciplinary practice is manifested as a form of regenerative healing as a means to unlock ancestral traditions as sites of resilience.  

This work aims to increase intamicy with our ecological landscapes and archive diasporic legacies through a decolonised framework.

Gianna facilitates in-person plant dye workshops and takes on custom plant dye commissions alongside selling a selection of artworks - which can be found here.
