“I like to experiment with various materials.
Wool is one of my favorite natural materials. One can do so many different things with it. Just think of knitting, felting, crochet, filling, weaving, piling, throwing, tangling, hurling-burling, gallimaufring…
Okay, I am getting carried away… let`s talk about something else:
I like to work on the shape of a piece of metal. Recently I discovered lead free wire for shaping. One can make beautiful things out of it. I made a few and would like to show them to you.”
“Most of all I like to enjoy life! Meet people, mingle with friends, play music, play Volleyball, go for walks and hikes in nature…..just like most of us!”
