Bretta C. Walker is a practitioner of temporal, alchemical, and relational poetics. Her work is that of a deeply personal practice grounded by healing and liberated by process, often addressing liminality, somatic memory, passage, intimacy, and abyss.
She was born and raised in the Blue Ridge Mountains of rural Appalachia and currently leads a nomadic life throughout Europe, seeking out and manufacturing temporary autonomous zones.
She is a certified permaculture designer and budding herbalist of the Wise Woman tradition, spearheads the publishing project Evidence House, is represented by Vtape distributors in Canada, and holds a BFA in Studio Art from Tufts University.
Her works have shown in various galleries and festivals across the Americas, Asia, and Europe and have been permanently archived in several institutional collections, including that of The International Center of Photography in New York.
