Hand embroidery on antique homespun fabric, some of the designs are created by me after extensive research of ethnic textiles and semiotics.
I haven’t written about this before here, but my interest in art started with ethnic clothing and not painting. I started collecting folk dress items many years ago. I have exhibited some of my Romanian folk costumes in Fribourg. See below some of the photos.
Here is a selection of my woodwork throughout the years. It is the first medium I have painted on since I started making art.
