I’m a fiber artist and ecoritual® practitioner living in Lier, Belgium.
My intention is to create connexion with the living through art and rituals. I create ritual objects and personalized rituals as well as art.
I work with natural and/or recycled material: wool, cotton, paper, drift wood, rusted iron, plants, old pictures.
I like mixing techniques: embroidery, poetry, spinning, weaving, natural dying and printing, writing, drawing, painting.
Everything is about repair and harmonizing .
Repairing broken things. Sweaters with holes, the damaged nature and hearts, excluded people, the discriminated.
Second chance, second life. Everything but resigning.
A photograph, a thread, some written words. A number showing the time, or the emergency.All those things put together
assembled, pasted, embroidered create a new history.
The thread guides the story.
Connects the elements.
Guides the eyes.
towards new horizons, full of promisses.
In the thread, sometimes a hair.
In the ink, sometimes blood.
In the embroidery, a prayer.
Repairing tolerance and love.
Weaving links. Unify.
Slow down and see.
