The name Helmi in ‘House of Helmi’ is taken from my much beloved grandmother. She was one of the many persons that has been and are around me in my family, my house. These men and women are a major reason why I am passionate about textiles, illustrations and storys. I was brought up by grannies, aunts and a mum who knitted, sewed and embroidered. A grandfather that wrote stories and a dad that painted and illustrated. These are all persons who love to create things with their own hands and minds.
The ‘House of Helmi’ takes inspiration from things in the surroundings and by the creativity by the people before me.
