Statement:

Using the most common weaving techniques, with a fascination for rhythm and repetitions, I create a variety of shapes, textures and structures to express my imagination of social themes. It is an ever-growing process inspired by instinct and intuition, an investigation, a translation, as if looking through a symbolic lens at the everyday and the things that touch me emotionally. It stimulates social awareness in myself and probably the viewer too.
