Art has always been prominently present in my life, as a natural companion on my path. An endless stream of ideas is continuously seeking its way towards a material expression. Being a versatile, creative person, I worked with many sorts of materials until eventually focusing on textile, paint and minerals.

My work is always an expression of the joy of life, joy and inspiration that comes from the myriad forms and colours in nature. For me, nature is an unlimited source of inspiration.

I hope to move and delight the viewer as well as spark curiosity.

My work embraces the following areas: as a textile artist & quilter I exhibit widely in Europe and I have won several prizes; I am a coach for awakening artistic talents; and as a certified quilt judge I have been trained to evaluate objectively the works of others. Finally, I give introductory courses in creative stitching and in jurying and judging quilts.
