“For several years I was a member of a collective made up of designers who made textile graffiti works and involved city residents of different ages in the creation. I have also had the opportunity to work in an architecture school for children and young people, and in a clay workshop. Those experiences have had a liberating effect on me. My work has become bolder in the way that I plan less and give more room for chance. Textile works are often born spontaneously, as if under the guise of play. Embroidering fabric is my passion. I paint and draw with threads. In my work, I use recycled and surplus material as much as possible. The mini rug textiles, which I call fluff pieces, began to be born a few years ago in a residency in Paris. I combined fluff and embroidery into small works that are easy to make anywhere and fit in a handbag.”
