CONTEMPORARY FIBER ART
INSPIRED BY NATURE

I am a fiber artist and feltmaker.

I mainly focus on textured wall hangings using as much natural fiber as possible.  

 

My biggest source of inspiration is nature with all its beauty, richness and variety.  

I have always wondered how nature can create the most perfect textures, surfaces and patterns around us. Sometimes you need to stop to look deeper and realise all the connections.

Most of my work is inspired by the textures, surfaces and color combinations found in nature. 

  

While studying in art college, I came familiar with traditional textile techniques. Over the last few years I have specialized in felting, free hand embroidery and tapestry weaving.

At the moment these are the best mediums for experimenting with fiber, textures and surface design.

I love the process of creativity and the freedom it gives you to explore and play with different ideas.

My work contains fiber art wall hangings, wearable art, accessories and a range of home decor products. 

Lately I have been focusing more on the creative process of interior textiles, wall hangings and exhibition work. I have actively taken part in local and international exhibitions for the last five years. My artworks have been  exhibited in Finland, France and the USA and on many online platforms. 

Over the years I have also been teaching a range of live workshops and courses - mainly in different techniques of felting but also in other art & craft areas. My goal is to inspire people to be more creative by believing in learning new skills. At the moment I am working on creating online courses to be able to share that goal with a wider audience across the world.

I live and work in the quiet countryside barn studio. As I am passionate about fiber, we have a small fiber farm specialising in Swedish finewool sheep (finulls), angora goats and rabbits. 

 

I am a member of International Feltmakers Association and Finnish Felt association Filtti.

If you have a project or commission you would like to discuss, please contact me.
