Rebirth
Sometimes I see beauty in things that other people find strange or are even repulsed by. I become fascinated when there is something you do not want to see and the feeling you get when you do not want to look at something, yet you still do. My jewellery deals with the tension that lies between attraction and repulsion. I take seemingly inappropriate materials, making ordinary and familiar objects seem extraordinary and unfamiliar.
In the 18th century, many new breeds of animals and plants were discovered and it was the main era of cabinets of curiosities. People collected rarities because it gave them the feeling of being in the presence of something extraordinary and marvellous. The cabinets of curiosities were not meant to sympathize with the creatures on display, only marvel over their oddity. In a world where not many new and exotic breeds are discovered, I use dead creatures in my pieces to evoke wonder. The creatures are transformed and reborn; given a new life as objects of astonishment.

Strange gardens
I love gardens - love the promise therein...
They are small, self-contained landscapes with their own individual laws. Places of longing or usefulness, depending on the case.
They are as diverse and unique as the people who live in them: the peasant or vegetable garden, the pleasure garden, the allotment garden, the front garden, the baroque garden, the overgrown garden, or the roof garden in the big city...
Colourful garden: I lustwalk in a glorious garden full of colour. My rampant palette of pure colours orange, yellow, light, medium and steel blue, green, red...this is my colourful cottage garden all colour!
