Layla Ardalan lives and works in New Orleans. Upon receiving her degree from Columbia, Layla was awarded a Critical Language Scholarship which allowed her to spend three months in Tajikistan (Central Asia) where she continued to develop her work. International travel to Brazil, India, Nepal, and Mexico continue to inform her artistic process. In 2014 Layla will travel across Southeast Asia to study traditional indigo and batik techniques. Her work employs a variety of printmaking techniques as well as mixed media collage. Her most recent body of work features an additional layer of texture as each collage is embroidered.
She continues exhibit regularly and participate in residencies in the southeast region of the U.S. Please email her if you would like to receive updates regarding her active exhibition schedule.
