I draw and construct geometric patterns digitally, then, using modules, create them in large formats. My working process is all about form, repetition, rhythm, colour and order. I enjoy working with installations, and my ambition is to develop a sort of dialogue between the works of art and the specific spaces where they are exhibited. Until recently, I was printing patterns on wool and silk cloth. Currently, I’m exploring ‘textile’ practices and traditions which have been applied to wood-based and harder materials. I see myself as strongly rooted in a Nordic textile tradition.
