Textile is the continuing theme in my life. I am fascinated by fibers and weaving techniques. Exploration of the two systems of threads - warp and weft crossing on another - is a continuous challenge. I am fascinated by constructing matter by means of thread – three-dimensional shapes or two-dimensional planes with shapes and colors - in which the material, the structure and the weaving techniques are necessary and indispensable parts of the matter. I dye most of my materials. I am fascinated by gradating colors, which I dye on the warp before the weaving, varying the colors by mixing threads of different nuances in the warp. In my tapestries I often combine these gradations with transformation or dissolving of patterns.
