One of the core reasons I enjoy working with fiber as an art form is due to its tactile qualities. This selection of work shows how an artist can unlock the sense of touch even from a visual standpoint.

My inspiration comes from mother Nature, which provides the materials necessary for my creations, whether in raw form (twigs, bark, mushrooms), or transformed (fibers, fabrics...). I also recycle whatever arouses my curiosity and then incorporate in my work.
