Statement

My work reflects my intimate world. Often I construct abstract versions of rooms, buildings, and cities that mirror my dreams and fears. Some of them relate to memories I have, people in my past or people around me. Yet others deal with my needs for protection, my fear of being locked in or shut out and my fascination with visible and invisible boundaries.
I am intrigued by the process in which walls simultaneously define and shut out space.
My work is about finding refuge and freedom.

I am inspired by the everyday rhythms and choreographies of life; how we move, interact, build and heal. I am fascinated by wings and shelters.
Often I make unorthodox combinations of materials to create tension and balance. Sometimes I use found objects: quiet mirrors of other intimate worlds.

When I was six years old, I learned to sew. This love for textile techniques constitutes an important aspect of my jewellery practice. Sewing by hand is like meditation to me; while sewing I build and repair, stich by stitch.

I sew scraps of old book covers together. Old books carry stories: tales about how they've been cherished or abused. The stitching brings the old materials together, heals them, thus creating new narratives.
