About

Ever since the 80‘s I‘ve been creating designs, mainly in the medium of textiles.

I live for my profession.

Everything that surrounds me provides me with inspiration for my work.

Inspiration is in everything.

Exhibitions; books; movies; music; journeys; current affairs or world events.

It is in everything.

I strive to create every piece of artwork with passion.

Continually finding something new, trying out, intensive examination.

Initial ideas, fragments, pictures, colours, shapes, light, shadows…

But also surfaces, haptic of objects, materials.

Music.

Utilise all senses, apply.

Recollection of the past.

Stories, history.

Remember, not forgetting, revivifying, cherishing.

Movies, books, exhibitions, travels, cities, other cultures, nature.

Discovering, absorbing, memorising.

Occupying oneself with presence, new technologies, divining future.

1000 pictures in my mind.

Contact, communication, conversations with others.

Creative.

1000 ideas in my head.

I love and live my craft. Day by day.

Alongside the contemporary studio, I have an archive of handpainted designs dated mainly from the 1950’s, 60’s, 70’s. It also includes swatch books from the early until the middle of the 20th century.
