My layered objects grow spontaneously during the process or are developed from a concept.

The materials I make by myself and I work with, inspires me. Together with my handmade paper I use: industrial paper, postal labels, fleece, plastics, metal and wood. Very special is my own idée and

technique about free stitching on layered paper with the stitching machine. Specialities of my

works are: Three dimensional hand made paper objects, art books, stitches on paper.

Postal label collections as: “Undulation “, “The Folding” and “The Wave “in own technique.

Coming out of the flat part is very important.

Beside I make Touchable art books for blind peoples. My works are documented for several international catalogues.
