FIBER ART CREATIONS


Follow the thread … its touch inspires me.
Silk, cotton, wool, metal, paper, feathers, raffia, Lurex, hemp, nettle, linen, shells, plants, gold, silver…
My travels wrap around it.
I keep its imprint on my fingertips.
My encounters with nature, the city and people, music and words, all inspire me and challenge me.
Weaving is my favorite expression.
I work with emptiness, as the saying goes“It’s the emptiness that gives the vase its shape.”
Poetry reveals itself between warp and weft.

I weave the void, the balance between everything.
An interval is not seen as an absence that separates, but as a temporal relationship.
From the void between the threads that separates and connects them.
It is the overcoming of the duality of empty and full.
