Odeta Xheka

Known mostly for her unique brand of mixed media on canvas, Odeta Xheka is a fine art and digital artist, writer, poet, collage maker, and picture book creator.

Xheka’s story parallels the highs and lows that countless women artist face as they negotiate the demands of daily pressures of the family with the aspiration to make ambitious art. As a woman, fated to be narrated rather than be the narrator, she makes art to claim her voice. Art is the antithesis of speechlessness!

In recent years, alongside focusing on raising her family, she has worked on art projects that aim to decipher the various ways that a lived reality and an emotional truth can be represented.
