One of my earliest memories is helping my grandmother with winding rags for weaving into balls. They had to be neat and they all had to be sorted according to colour. Another early memory is gathering leaves and other plant materials in the forest for natural dyeing with my mother.
Having grown up around textiles and textile crafts has given me a natural relationship with the craft and a curiousness when it comes to textiles and thread. My mother, aunt and maternal grandmother all had worked in a weaving and spinning mill and they all did lots of textile crafts at home. My paternal grandmother had a classical Swedish "vävstuga" at home together with her sister.
For a long time I was a knitter, mostly because it was so easy to bring the knitting to different places. However, eventually I "found my way home" in weaving and spinning.
As a designer and writer, I've been published in, amongst others, The Scandinavian Weaving Magazine VÄV, Handwoven and Ashford's The Wheel Magazine and as a spinner I've won prizes in different competitions, there amongst the Swedish Championships of Hand Spinning. I have also been a part of different exhibitions, both with woven textiles and hand spun yarns.
