Austria owes much of its prosperity to the Alps and its pristine waters, enveloped in the grace of their pure source. As the watershed spreads out, it becomes waterfalls, ponds, and streams. The flow of water invites us to consider origins. People are drawn to rivers and streams, our souls drifting like water out and away from the source.
I drifted out of a small country town surrounded by nature. We lived each day in conversation with the natural world and the changing seasons, and I painted
pictures of wild flora and fauna. Although I eventually settled in textile design, I never lost my awe for and love of nature. Many of my project themes have related to nature, as in “Forest and Water” or “Waterplants of Bungui Pass,” and a number of my textiles feature nature motifs, such as mountains, winds, trees, flowers, and the flow of streams. This is the Garden of Eden, a way of finding harmony with nature, and this is where my world of textiles drifts about.
