How were you first introduced to felt?
In 2002 I was in Norway to my mother-in -law, since I am “felted in”.
What are you favorite wools with which to work?
Merino wool tops. Wool tops.
From what do you get your inspiration?
Inspiration is everything: when I am going to the street, when I sleeping and wake up from ideas….everything…I am looking to the world from “felted eye”…
What is your background? (feel free to discuss family, education, prior artistic experience, whatever you care to share…)
My grandmothers knited, crocheted, spined, weaved, sewed, carded, embroidered… The textile always surronded me and I always know, that I will create. My visit to my mother -in-law was culmination-I found wool…my bigest motor of the life.
What are you favorite materials to combine with felt?
I like use everything with wool: silk, different yarns, naturals and not naturals materials.
What would you like to try that you have not done before? (installation art, books, wearable’s, teaching, dyeing, raising your own sheep..or even a new artistic field or media…)
My wishes are not for my posibility…I have a lot of plans and I would like that it come true in really, not in dreams…
Are you currently working on a special project that you would like to share?
I have finish my big projects and now I will rest, felt and have a good time with my family.
Can you share with us 5 names of inspiring artists or work, not necessarily in the textile field.
My husband said that I am thinking only about wool. Not true.
- Tina Turner
- Alexander Mcqueen
- “Yello “
- “Massive attack”
If you could set up an exhibit (group or solo), where would you do it and what would it look like?
The conception of collection will show presence place and it depend on the idea.
