Tapestries

I use the language of thread. Thread is universal and forges a link between human beings. Since early history of civilizations, man has been using thread for survival, decoration and pleasure. My field of fiber art draws on ancient textile skills to interpret them in new ways with new materials. Fluctuating between the sculptural, the pictorial and the spatial, using my own combination of colors and materials, weaving with Gobelins techniques, knitting, crocheting, sawing, embroidering and using other traditional hand-works, I experiment with personal artistic and poetic associations.
