My work ranges from everyday slöjd – which is about smaller items – to public commission. The expression of all folk cultures interest me and is an abundant source of my motivation.
For many years I have sketched and measured slöjd from museum archives to learn how slöjd design and joints are made.
Folk Art is a farming community desire to decorate their everyday items. Chip carved or embroidered animals and humans is to be seen on folk art and the symbolic message is repeated in every country, time and materials. Folk art is ancient, universal human and global. Despite the poverty and misery it had to shine for the eye!
