My inspiration comes from cultural diversity, my tripod of cultures: Sweden, France and Japan. Sweden is my "homeland" and will always create vibrations of love deep inside me, for its people and its nature. France is my today home country, where I have my family (my french husband and two children) and my studio. Here I learn to enjoy daily life which is easy with natural food from the market and a very rich culture and history. Japan is the country where my soul feels at home. A country I love very deeply and that learned me so much about mindfulness, harmony, quality, papermaking and the importance of contrasts in life...
With my creations, the most important for me is to show the beauty and the miracles in nature. The hidden geometry, the inner language of connections, the harmony beyond the chaotic appearance...I'm sure that if we open up for the beauty in nature, we also came closer to our inner authentic selves.
Mindfulness is a world we often hear about today. To be more present, to see the beauty, to feel life...and that we all are connected to something bigger.
My hope is that my art and designs can help you to be more present, and to feel the "inner langugage" in nature communicate with you.
With my art, I want to create bridges between art and design to create more quality in our daily life.
I use silkscreen on thin papers for art collages, silkscreen on textiles, drawings and prints for licenced projects but I also eco dye fabric doing handmade cloths.
There are so many possibilities!!!
For many years I did artworks in paper and mixed media on canvas and in 2005 I started to do prints on fabric. In 2007 I started with my agency Rom Project in Tokyo, the brand "Inner Language of Nature". We have done many licensed products together and several exhibitions in Japan. In 2012 I did textile collections with DHS for Hemtex in Sweden. I also create my own handmade collections in my studio in the south of France and do interior design projects with my printed textiles.
I am a Swedish artist and textile designer, trying to express an authentic natural beauty from nature in my art and design. Organic forms around us are so good for our well being, gives us energy and a deeper feeling of being alive.
I then create artworks and art as textiles for homes, clothes or licenced products with my drawings and patterns.
