Sylvia Meyer-Stumborg, Textile Artist

"My work has its roots in old craft traditions as well as in contemporary art and design. I am inspired by forms and stories offered especially by art, architecture, books, nature and people.

Often words, notes, concept mapping will start my reflections and are the first step in my creative process. I develop this raw material through drawing, modelling, felting mostly into sculptural compositions.

I am passionate about creating organic, tactile, contemporary pieces which are radiating sensitivity and strength at the same time.

Right now I am exploring the idea of identity and change during time. "
