Chanig is part of my roots, and I am her future. Born at the very end of the 19th century, she was a lace maker and a knitter who taught me embroidery and sewing in my younger days. This work does not look backward—it expresses the links that connect me to my past. Chanig made me the person I am, the person who thinks that hands are an extension of the mind and contribute to creation.

Speaking about my innermost feelings is rather difficult. As a textile artist, threads and fabrics have become my means of expression. They are my vocabulary to make free- motion machine portraits, in which the art is the narrative.
