Even though I was educated as a graphic designer, I’ve always been interested in working with textiles. Making designs and turning them into tactile pieces of art you can actually touch with rug tufting turned out to be something I enjoy thoroughly.
Rug tufting is a technique for rug making in which a thread is inserted through a primary backing fabric. I use a machine called a tufting gun, which is operated by hand to insert the thread in a certain design. Every single piece is made by me in my atelier in Utrecht, the Netherlands.
