As a fiber artist…

I have developed my own techniques and creative process in which I connect and transform wool fibers to create felted poetry.

My main technique is felting, one of the oldest textile techniques in the world. To me sheep wool and the “simple” artisanal way of creation form a connection with the deepest roots of mankind – with the origins of being human.

Over the years I have developed my very own technique and style that allows me to achieve a very fine, smooth and sophisticated, yet firm and solid material.

I love challenging myself. In my latest works I use geometry as an inspiration. I implement patterns of sacred geometry, mainly inspired by nature as well as patterns from the Islamic and Moorish culture. The felting technique enables me to “carve” out unique sculptural works of art from surface and thus brings the geometry to life.

To me, these geometric patterns reflect the order of the universe, as the basis of all life and the expression of the divine. I combine the original material (sheep’s wool) with the sacred aspect (geometry) and let my hands form and transform to create something new and unique. My art reflects the idea of pure universal essence, which manifests itself in the creation of unique masterpieces, just like nature.

Artistic creation is a sacred act that requires calm, patience, full attention, devotion, respect and high quality. Therefore I only choose high quality materials for my work, such as the finest merino wool, silk fibers, precious papers, gold leaf, beads and many more.

I always felt inspired and fascinated by mystique. In recent years it is particularly the mystical in Sufism that fascinates me.

I love that in Sufism a craftsman’s and artists’ work is seen as the expression of divine beauty and is of exceptional value.
