With the tufting gun I paint both wall textiles and carpets, often colorful and imaginative, preferably with joy and a sense of humor.
Sometimes I sew the tufted textiles into various shapes, pillows or sculptures. It is yet another challenge to think in three dimensions.
It is the freedom that fascinates me so with tufting: freedom both in shape, height of pile, material and the ability to change my work and ideas within the process. And of course the end result, the beautiful carpet with the dense, thick pile that I know will stay just as nice for many decades.
I´m still learning to master the technique, but it develops every time I tuft. And best of all, it is still so much fun!
