BIO

Born and bred in Basel, Switzerland, Sabine studied textile art and design at the 'Schule für Gestaltung'
to then work in the costume and stage props workshops of the 'Basler Stadttheater' (Theatre Basel).

The experience she gained from other jobs, such as working on building sites, in a fine mechanic's workshop, or as a nurse aid in hospital, all feed into her sculptural work. In 2001 she moved to Hull, England, where she now works and lives.

More about her way and work in this interview with Axisweb.
