found fabric

“Found” fabric is the material I work with. Fabrics I receive or come across at thrift stores. Fabrics from clothes I have worn. Often it’s the colour that catches my attention, but the texture or the “feel” of the fabric also play a part. The moment that the fabrics I find, end up in my stash, a first step in my process has been taken.

When I create, I am looking. I look for colours that match or contrast, ways to sew patches together, shapes that balance each other. By constantly searching, trying, observing and learning, I have developed my own work process.

I do not strive for perfection, but leave room for irregularities. My straight lines are often slightly curved, my patterns uneven, my circles never quite round.

Once in a while I write about my art process in my newsletter. If you would like to read it please subscribe through this link
