Philippa Renshaw is a interdisciplinary Artist, Designer, Maker, based in San Francisco. She creates surface patterns by employing an array of techniques including printmaking, textiles, ceramics, drawing, painting, and digital art.

Living in a neoliberal capitalist society, she mourns the loss of quality. In her work she illuminates the relevance of handcraft in a technological world through in-depth exploration of materials and techniques. She operates between risk and certainty.

Renshaw has an MA in Design Futures and a BA in Textile Design from Cardiff Met University, UK and is currently studying for an MFA at San Francisco State University.
