I am an artist and designer with textile expressions as basis. I like creating images with a tactile feeling and to shape patterns.
One of the starting points for my artistry is the feeling of creating with my own hands.
Therefore working with textile materials streches like a read thread through my personal development – „to embroider is like painting“.
First it was textile images made in various techniques such as woven pictures or collages. Now it is embroidery that captures my interest. I want to create tension within the images by using simple forms in the composing, in e.g. geometric figures. Often a graphic expression can be discovered in my pictures. When crafting pieces with my own hands it is also nice to work with other materials. Therefore sometimes diverse recyclingmaterial is merging with the textiles of my embroidery pieces. The challenge is to find new forms and new fields of application while working with existing objects. For me that adds an additional dimension to the artistic approach.
I do also design modern aesthetic embroidery kits, click on webshop to have a look. I have published two books about embroidery, the first one is called “Grafisk korsstygn (graphical cross stitch)“ which is a patternbook and the book “Uttryck med nål och tråd (expressions with needle and thread)“ which is a manual in free artistic embroidery. You can find many of my artworks on this homepage under the tab art.
In parallel with my artistic activities i do lecture and give my own workshops to spread my knowledge and inspire others to also express themselves.
