Since 2007 I have been producing handwoven natural textiles on my countermarch loom on the Atlantic island of Gran Canaria. I use high quality natural materials, such as silk, wool and linen, dyed in a wide range of natural colours to express my artistic sensitivity.
As a specialist in natural dyes, I hand dye my wool and silk products using local plants and the cochineal bug, which was introduced to the Canary Islands in the 19th century and feeds on the prickly pear cactus. I combine the colours obtained with this method to reflect my love for and sensitivity to the natural landscape of the Canary Islands.
The dyeing and weaving are slow and meticulous processes resulting in textiles which possess an extraordinary richness in texture and colour. With dedication and passion, I then transform them into unique garments, accessories and household furnishings.
