I always startfrom my sources of inspiration, with these eyes I look around me. I show viewers how I look at things around me. Next to that I make jewellery and I like to use my tools and try out how materials reacts to them. Eventually I work with materials, and that provides an additional factor. I find out the properties they possess and how I can edit them and this will count in the final result. Some techniques I use are common and you can find them in your house.
Naturally I tend to work clean and delineated, here I try against it by for example damaging materials. It gets me out of my comfort zone and it bothers me, but at the same time I want to do it.
