My work arises intuitively and in an empirical way. I am continually trying to discover logical constructions, inspired by rhytms and structures in the botanical world.

In the development of my ideas the use of paper as a means of expressing myself was an obvious choice. As a material, it possesses a lot of qulities that come in useful to me. Moreover, the tactile qualities of paper are important in connection with wearable objects.

The cause for a new type of research is often quite coincindental. Struck by a certain form of material, I start a quest in which an interaction arises of thought and action in order to attain a useful concept. Finding the appropriate technical solutions is an important challenge in connection with this.
