View Points Davos



View Points Davos is a series of 4 landscape pictures, framed in embroidery hoops.

They are replicas of pictures I took in my hometown of places (view points) I really like.


On the back, the exact geographic coordinates are indicated.


To the fiber techniques (appliqué and hand stitch), mixed media is added (miniature sculpting and painting). The pieces are adorned with paraphernalia I found in exactly the same places as depicted (dried flowers, stones, lichen etc.).


Here are the four pieces:

One of the pieces (Albertibach) was juried into the yearly contemporary art exhibition Bündner Werkschau at the gallery Kabinett der Visionäre in Chur in 2016.





Stamped series

The stamped series is not new, but I am catching up with this blog today… hopefully… 😉

So: for the stamped series, I cut stamps (obviously!). I started with cutting lino, but my fingers didn’t like the band aids very much… therefore, I bought some rubber sheets which are waaaaaaaaaaaaaaay easier to cut!

The resulting three textile pieces are below.

Striped series

“Creating pattern, exploring stripes” – these were my main goals with this series. Furthermore, I wanted to experiment with incorporating unusual materials into my work. I finished the series in July 2017 and the works (alongside others) will be shown at two upcoming art fairs in Basel and Zurich.


My first piece is titled “Winter Eve” and it addresses three senses: sight, touch and smell. On a painted cotton background, I attached citrus peel and gloves with hand stitch and further adorned with glass beads. This is how it looks in a golden painted wood frame:

The second piece is titled “Frost”. My daughter painted some cotton with water colors, and I cut it into stripes of which I then burned the borders. The burning process further changed the colors of the fabric stripes which added a cool effect. I then fixated the stripes on a cotton background and added sashiko-style embroidery.

“Frost” 2017

Piece no. 3 is titled “Industrial”. I formed aluminium stripes out of yogurt lids and created a linocut stamp for the ring shapes. Framed it looks such:

The fourth piece bears the title “Serenity” (after a fellow fiber artist saw it in progress on instagram and commented “it looks so serene!” I dediced on this title 😉 ). I painted a silk background and carefully glued birch tree bark stripes on it before adding stitches. For framing, I decided on a dark frame for contrast:

The last piece is “Pollination”. One that also addresses two senses: sight and smell. The stripes consist of bee’s wax and the embroidered part is mostly turkey work, left uncut.
