Beach collection and the Swedish Nature collection.

In 2019 I was travelling and was visiting several beaches in the USA including Pebble Beach and the beaches around the Florida keys. The never ending changes in the colors in the sky during sunrise and sunset inspired my "Beach" collection.

My interest in weaving and creation began already around the age of 10 (in the 70’s). My mother and an aunt of my mother, weaved rag rugs into the new house my family later moved into. I was consumed by what you could accomplish from old bed sheets and clothes. New carpets were made of recycled material. Sitting and watching the progression of the weaving made my curiosity for the craft grow. Also, I liked to sit and play with the rag and mix and match the colors.
