Info & technique
I am working with Fiber Art, drawing and painting. Being a studio artist I work on a daily basis. Over thirty years this has been my occupation. Main interest is fiber art. I do draw and paint in between the weavings. Drawing with crayon has followed me since childhood. Crayon drawings appear automatically on peaces of paper. Mostly directions comes out of dreams or impulses from the subconscious. Years ago I started to play with the idea of a fusion between two different media. Crayon and fiber. Didnt really know how to do it. Through experimenting I came to interpret and transfer the crayon drawing expressions to fiber.
I use a linen warp and for filling: wool, linen, silk and cotton all in various gross. When the weaving is done in the weaving chair I hang it on to the wall for fulfilment. That includes embroidery on top. Crayon drawing and sewing has been an interest of mine way back in time. I was schooled in weaving, embroidery, painting and drawing 1980-85. The colour scale I use in my weavings are mostly the same as I always been using with the crayon. I use traditional weaving technics in a wild mixture. Finding ways to develop the technics is my main goal. To find new ways in using these two materials together.
The drive behind is to build, construct and form. Inspiration comes from abstract expressionism and their followers.
I own Anns art factory I exhibit in Sweden and all over the world on a regular basis.
Jag arbetar med bildväv, teckning och måleri. I huvudsak kritan och den textila bilden. Det har alltid funnits en kärlek till kritan som uttrycksmedel. Detta resulterar i kritskisser på papper som kommer automatiskt ur drömmar och möten med människor.
