Textiles are my medium to push the boundaries between art, science
and technology. I specialize in weave structures, and to me the loom and act of weaving represent an infinite space for creative and technical exploration. 

I am a newly graduated Designer from Aalto University and currently based in Helsinki, Finland. Making tangible prototypes is my method to create and do research. During hands-on work, I process new ideas and information and transform them into physical objects.

Lately I have been focusing on embedding technology into the aesthetics and function of textiles. As a passionate collaborator, interdisciplinarity is in a key role in my future visions. Through my work, I aim to communicate a worldview that is conscious, human and sensory.
