I started my first emploment as Textile Designer at a wellknowend Textile Agency with an big net work of supplierschain around the world, I bloomed with inspiration and passion for my ability to create surface design's colours and new weaves for customers around Scandinava. Here was where I got the "know how" in this buisness after carring out design services to many.


And since I worked professionally for more then twenty years in this segment of home decoration, in product development and creating collection's and assortment for department stores in home decoration.
I got expertise skills in supporting merchandising.
