Profile
I am a textile designer with a great passion for color, material, structure and techniques. Over the years I have specialized in weaving,
including jacquard, and I dive into color and the use of color. I am always concerned with the aspect that makes material interesting and stirring. Looking at something from a technical perspective helps me to come up with new ideas and innovations.
