ABOUT

Originally from the archipelago, Faroe Islands, I´m currently studying textile design In Copenhagen. From a background as a dressmaker/tailor, I have extensive experience with creating everything from costume showpieces to classical bridal gowns and to M2M classical menswear.

I strive to have lead my work with a reflected head, and to carry it out with heart and hands. It is very important to me to have reflected thoughts around my ideas and concepts, to make the work matter and have significance. With acknowledgment for the qualities that the material provides, I have a intuitive approach to experimenting through craftsmanship, where I like to use my traditional background and merge it with new technologies available.

Having worked with and around the body as a frame of reference for 8 years now, I´d find it exiting to try to explore working on a bigger scale - for instance within interior and architecture.
