of Art and Design in 1975.
I started my own pottery in Kalmar, Sweden. It has developed and has
been very successful and I have become a full-time potter. Any spare time
I now devote to embroidery.
My creativity follows three parts:
During the week I throw utility pieces in the pottery. White and brown stoneware, where the emphasis is strictly on function. However
I also throw porcelain pieces with simple geometrical décor, rather

The rest of the time I devote to embroidery,
where I use my own imagination; colour and form are my main guidelines.

Since developing my embroidery, I am increasingly
conscious of the level of fine detail required and as a consequence I

look forward to a future combining my love of embroidery with my pottery
pieces, some of which I hope you will enjoy when you look at my website.
