CV Monica Danielsson Bichsel



Fabric can carriy so many memories: From growing up as a plant to being woven, worn and becoming an art quilt. To work with a thread is to extend, enrich and feel even in the hands a story. In my pictures I am trying to develop the feeling for the textile in the expression. The colors and light play a major role in my creative work. Finding a luster in another dimension is

what I find creatively Another
the material is to to become alive structure of the create a working with of fabric and 
interesting and stimulating. fascination with allow the colors by using the fabric. Or to structure by different layers



Born in Linköping, Monica has lived in many cities in Sweden and Europe. Her artistic career has began in theater and later, she moved on to textile art. With the creation of her company Leufsta Quilt, she got the opportunity to organize exhibitions as well as invite and meet textile artists from Europe. She imports hand-dyed fabrics from various West African countries for her business. And recently, she has gone back to the theatre and started creating scenographies made out of textile.
