I am a textile artist living and creating using time-honoured skills, in Thunder Bay, Ontario, Canada. Inspired by my Finnish family’s immigration to Canada, I engage with my Scandinavian ancestry via the meditative, concentrated, and tactile processes inherent in the traditional techniques of dyeing, felting, stitching, and weaving. I create while reflecting on the significance of place, migration, and location, combining textile and land-based approaches to art-making. Foraging in the urban and rural environments of my surroundings, I use plants, trees, flowers, and mushrooms to create plant-dyes. Dyeing new and recycled materials with these foragings, I stitch, weave, and felt environmentally-minded works of art and clothing.
