I create limited edition collections comprising of handwoven shawls and scarves, as well as fabrics for fashion and interiors. The production of my work is undertaken in a weaving atelier in the South of France. Clients can choose from a selection of existing designs, or work with me in a collaborative dialogue to create entirely personal pieces.
My textiles are characterized by a juxtaposition of modernistic novelty yarns and natural materials, such as linen, cashmere, silk, wool, and viscose. The surfaces, sheen or matte, are composed of different textural weaves. I am interested to convey a balance between the natural and organic quality of the handwoven cloth, and the elegant simplicity of modern minimalism. Working on a handloom has provided me with the freedom to explore asymmetric and curved lines, irregular densities and weave structures, and to create unrepeated compositions within each unique piece. I currently live and work in New York City.
