As a curious and sensitive child/teenager I followed many art and dance classes.
After one year at the fashion academy, I switched to visual arts, where the love to explore different materials was encouraged. After my graduation, I started with wheel throwing; that was the beginning of a deep understanding and eagerness to ‘talk’ with clay.
My sculptures are connections between my varied passions: textile, clay, dance, fashion and sculpture.
I love to explore space and play with rhythm, shape/form, movement, energy and sound. My work is telling you a story. Listen, see, feel and experience what happens when the sculptures move and enjoy the moment.
