Eszter Bornemisza creates wall-hangings, installations, and objects from the ubiquitous material of waste newspaper and cloth.

Originally a mathematician, she started working with textiles in the late 1990’s with exploring her own ways in surface design and quilting. She has extensively exhibited internationally and won several prizes. She lives in Budapest, Hungary. http://www.bornemisza.com/
