I started weaving after visiting Annie Albers s exhibition at Tate Modern.
It is strange to think that that when I started weaving, I could only think about what I could learn next. I had found a new medium to express myself.
My inspiration comes from a variety of sources: travels, textures and patterns found in landscape and architecture.
When an idea comes to mind, I imagine the different options and love seeing the patterns develop until the finished project is off the loom or the sewing machine.
I always feel very grateful to be able to express myself in this way and enjoy the meditative and ritualistic rhythm of weaving.
Every piece is unique and is given a name representing what I was imagining at the time of creation.
After many trials and errors, which is the only way to grow, my aim is to continue to learn and improve my skills, to follow my imagination and transform my mundane everyday life into more exciting experiences.
I experiment with every kind of material and textures. The result can be fair or amazing.
The possibilities to express my thoughts and feelings are endless and I always aspire to discover where my next ideas will take me.
I make scarves, cushions, table runners, embroidered frames, which I call “ornamentals” and I made my first poncho on a rigid heddle loom.
I weave with linen mercerised cotton bamboo yarn wool.
The summer scarves are made from Linen, bamboo yarn and mercerised cotton.
The winter scarves are made from thick yarn and Alpaca wool.
There are so many ways to bring a piece to life.
Just by holding a new piece of material bamboo wool cotton linen silk I can imagine what shape it could take.
It is not machine Perfect, it is hand and heart made and because I care about lowering my carbon footprint, I only use recyclable plastic and paper bags as packaging.
I hope you enjoy my craft as much as I love creating it.
In conclusion, I wish that my craft brings as much enjoyment to you as I delight in creating it.
