Erica 'Quinha' Mukai Faria (Campinas, Brazil, 1988) is a Registered Nurse and Japanese-American/Brazilian artist who uses textiles, wood, and found household objects to examine how a body works, plays, and rests. She is particularly interested in the value of things as they change shape. 

For several years, Quinha apprenticed with master tailor Larnell Baldwin in Philadelphia to learn patternmaking and custom garment manufacturing. Her work has been included at various national shows such as Vox Populi and Asian Arts Initiative in Philadelphia and Frieze New York. Quinha is the founder of Philadelphia Packaging Company, a nine-person collective that distributed free, print publications honoring the stories of small business owners in Philadelphia.

Quinha is pursuing her MFA in painting at Bard College.  Find her work in person at Carnation Contemporary in Portland, OR.
