My passion

 

Self expression through weaving came about after wrestling with cold hard materials during my training as a goldsmith. Because my heart chose the warmth, softness and comfort of yarns, I retrained quickly in weaving techniques.

Using basic weaving techniques I create a variety of shapes, textures and structures. It is an ever growing process, an investigation, a translation, as if looking through a symbolic lens at the everyday and the things that touch me emotionally.

Working with a variety of materials and colours and with a love for simplicity, shape and activity, I develop both unique wearables and spatial creations often with a combination between form and function.

With my wearables I try to bring a sensual experience by an interaction between person and material and to achieve an almost tangibility to the space in between.

My objects are an interplay between the woven structure and the manipulation of the material which then shows an emotional content and causes a reaction.
