Baby Blanket (2003)
4’ X 5’

Created as a child’s game named Search For the Rainbow! Twenty self-designed squares together with a dice and three figurines for the game. Made out of cotton and crocheted.

From early childhood, I was fascinated by the range of colors, and from my very first crafting projects in school to now. The play with colors is my main focus and fun!

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe was famous for his works like Faust, Goetz von Berlichingen, Prometheus, etc., but his many scientific (hardly known by many) books about colors and how they relate to each other and the harmony they create was in his own words the biggest achievement of his life!

I did not read all of them, but enough, that they have had a profound effect on me!

No matter what media I used, from Aquarell to Glaspaint to fabric or yarn, the creations of special effects by mixing them all in different ways has always been the most fun and something I am very passionate about!

It’s just so hard to choose what to do next—there are never enough hours in the day...
