Fiber Artist

I am adventurous in the use of materials, often combining a variety of techniques like printing, stitching, burning and embroidering, to create depth and texture in my textile works.
I work intuitively and spontaneously most of the time, although I sometimes have a clear idea of where I want the piece to go. Occasionally I do a very simple sketch, other times I just have an idea whirling around in my head.
My methods and techniques have changed, developed and adapted over time leading my interests towards different fields of textile art. The result is that my works are often very different from each other on techniques as well on size.
As a fiber artist I do very much enjoy the process of experimenting with different techniques in order to find out new exciting outcomes.
