Personal Creations & Research

« Nothing makes me feel more human and whole than to be in a creative space. »

As a person, I naturally tend to observe the quality of the links we cultivate with all our relations. This on going quest finds expression in my fibre work.

I am inspired by the historical and cultural aspects of the rug. In its essence, the rug represents a delightful metaphor for a humble and comfortable relationship between us and the earth. Thus, my two and three dimensional floor creations explore my vivid interest in social and planetary harmony, the intention being that the usual craft object becomes inspirations into our “interiors”.
Along the same line, I also create some clothing and felt murals which echo the warmth of the traditional mobile tapestries.

My allegiance to the DIVERSITY principle
is signed in each unique creation.
