Dorthe Merete Lykke Jensen’s professional qualifications are centered around the development of design methods, concept development, the properties of materials, and communication.

She finds the inspiration for the development of design methods in current and abstract topics such as the stock market, prejudice, integration etc. She challenges the known and traditional techniques by playing and experimenting with colors, patterns, and materials in the development of innovative textiles.

Dorthe designs complex textile pieces and has expertise in compounding and using the inherent properties and texture of the materials. The result is contrast-rich combinations of thin silk threads and copper paired with felted wool.
The textiles often have a sculptural expression which balances between an airy and feminine and a raw and robust expression.
