Raija Jokinen’s Intricate & Delicate Textile Art
“My art works are made of flax and the working method can be compared to painting and drawing, but the ‘paint’ is the fiber that is normally used e.g. as a base material for oil paintings. In addition, I use stitching to form ‘drawn’ lines and rice starch as a binder.” – Raija Jokinen
