Danish, exhibiting Textile/Fiber Artist and the owner of SewDanish - Scandinavian Textile Art http://sewdanish.etsy.com/
I have been crafting since early childhood. Making things energizes me and makes me happy. I love creating something from "nothing". I often combine and incorporate recycled items and vintage fabric in my products.
Some years ago I was very lucky complete City and Guilds part 1 and 2 (now diploma) in patchwork, quilting and design as well as several courses in contemporary free style machine and creative hand embroidery. Pure Bliss!
I often create a of small numbers pieces within a theme, exploring the possibilities. Since each piece is handmade, the individual item will always be unique. Besides making contemporary wall hangings, I like making small things that can be used in daily life. Most recently, thanks to ExtraPointPress I have expanded my shop with down loadable PDF tutorials http://www.etsy.com/listing/94058486/pdf-epattern-scandinavian-basket-weaving . The tutorials are also available for Kindle.
I belong to a contemporary textile art group, Fibrefusion http://fibrefusion.org.uk. The group exhibits extensively nationally and internationally and the group has published five books on experimental hand and machine embroidery.
