Not a true-to-life rendering of reality, but despite that recognizable. Old handwork techniques like knitting, crochet, weaving, tying, folding, spinning, embroidery are my inspiration. Sometimes a certain technique is enlarged, another time all kinds of textile elements form a totally new composition. I like to use soft pastels for the large sizes, and pen and (color)pencils for the smaller work.
