About the Artist

"My fibercollages, paintings, watercolors and mixed media are figurative and all linked. They depict an imaginary universe with landscapes, people, still lifes and dream. What I am trying to do is to show my love for people, beauty and life itself. Work as a means of living, living with work, and making a living with my work -- it occupies all my time. My work is mostly about people and their inner feelings and movement."

"My work is an intense must for my own well-being. I must create to empty my filled-up head. Dreams are in my work, and ideas, made-up stories, together with all my thoughts about people and their conditions, their lives and situations and their everyday milieu, mixed with my day-to-day reality. Work creates more work, each new piece calls for another. They are part of a process. If I am not inspired by my own thought it is the outside which will inspire me again. This is a never-ending process and I feel lucky to be able to see, feel, and experience it. Each angle is being explored -- I use everything to my advantage -- selfish artist that I am. I use, reuse it, put it in collages and drawings -- take a little here, give a little there."
