About

Textiles and yarn have been a great fascination for me all my life. For as long as I can remember, I've had a huge creative urge, and I love experimenting with materials, colors, volume and textures. I do everything from weaving and knitting to spinning, felting and sewing. I also work sculpturally – in both a large and small scale. I have a modern design language and a playful style, and I like to juggle between making art and utility items. My expression and motifs vary a great deal – everything from women's issues to purely decorative works. I work intuitively and constantly challenge and explore myself and the materials I work with.

 

As of August 2020 I'm studying textile at Capellagården in Öland, Sweden.
