Annukka

"I use recyclable materials and turn them into new stories through painting, drawing, sewing, weaving and embroidering. We are able to feel the memories and stories of past lives that have been lived through recycled materials."

The art as a way of expressing yourself

"I develop diary-like textile pieces from materials that are inherited, or already existing pieces from my previous textile experiments and scattered paintings, recycled textiles, cutting boards, driftwoods, stones and shellfish shells. I use recyclable materials and turn them into new stories through weaving, sewing and embroidering. We are able to feel the memories and stories of past lives that have been lived through recycled materials."
