ART IN DESIGN
To spread my art and my poetic nature message, even more, I started in 2007 to use my art, prints and drawings for license projects.
I began to collaborate with an agency in Tokyo, Rom Project. We founded the brand THE INNER LANGUAGE OF NATURE to produce nature-inspired products for Japanese companies. (HARIO glass, EDWIN cloths, GREENFLASH stationary, SATO Ceramics)
Then followed my textile collections for DHS/Hemtex in 2012/2013...
LICENSED PROJECTS JAPAN
THE INNER LANGUAGE OF NATURE is the brand and a whole concept I created together with my Japanese agency Rom Project in Tokyo with start in 2007. I try to transmit the inner energy in nature with my motifs using authentic, natural images. In parallel with the licenced products, I had two art exhibitions in Tokyo at Sembikiya Gallery and a summer installation at Wise Wise in Omotesando. To launch the products, a presentation with a mix of artworks and licenced products were shown at the Seibu department store.
PATTERN for textile
PATTERNS from my drawings for licenced projects like stationery, textile design or for other products.
I created a TEXTILE COLLECTION for DHS/Hemtex in 2014/2013. It was a fantastic project! I handprinted the motifs in my studio, and the old high-quality Swedish factory Rydboholm printed them after my models. Our idea was to create a NATURAL COLLECTION, to let us feel more, and feel good in a natural way in contact with authentic motifs.
I used fragments from my father's poems in almost all patterns to give more poetry to our daily life...

Today more and more digital printing takes over and gives a lot of new possibilities. I did for TERRE DE PASTEL one silk/cotton scarf with different drawn pastel flowers. For DHS we did a cushion from one of the paintings and for Edwin in Japan they used my motifs for their collection.
Here is a lot that could be done! See more
PRINTED PATTERN ON TEXTILE
my own personal production
LIMELEAVES AND BRANCHES
In 2010 I did decide to put two of my handmade patterns, inspired by the temporary beauty of WABI/SABI into production at the RYDBOHOLMS TEXTILFACTORY in Sweden. It was fascinating to follow the production at the old factory.
LIMELEAFS AND BRANCHES were then reproduced at DHS/Hemtex with a little more brownish colours.
It is a quiet Japanese pattern - very peaceful. I sell it in lengths or as products like table runners, tablecloths or cushions. It is made of high-quality linen fabric. The two grey colours create a depth in the pattern. See my SHOP ONLINE
