Artist statement

‘I like lace but especially in a free interpretation. In my education I learned to make lace in the traditional way.

I often use unusual materials like plastics, metal and hose. Paper, however, is very close to textiles. Cutting paper is a technique I have used very much recently. This technique results in a lace-like appearance.’
