Have you mastered any specific techniques?
I have a thorough knowledge of very many old and newer techniques for printing on textiles, both industrially and manually. I use all types of dyes (natural, reactive, acid, indanthrene, Indigo etc.) with techniques from direct printing to reserve printing.
How do you express tradition and innovation?
I think it is in my DNA to work from my Nordic heritage, but to try to renew it all the time and make it relevant in todayâ€™s way of thinking and living. I like to make my work simple and attractive for other people.

Why do your patterns feature so many stripes?
Striped textiles have a very long history in the Nordic countries, where the traditional home textiles for many hundred years were woven of plant-dyed wool in striped patterns.
What are your sources of inspiration?
I live and work in a fantastic place in the middle of nature and still close to Copenhagen, so the nature around me is a constant source of inspiration. Then Nordic traditions but also traditional textiles from all over the world, Folk Art, ceramics, Japanese crafts, etc.
