Artist Statement 

I find peace in nature, it fascinates me in an almost personal way. In portraying her, I want to convey her character but transformed by my sensitivity. Through misunderstanding and lack, through longing and excitement. 

I have something of a scientist in me. I like to explore, experiment and discover nature. On the one hand, I want to feel and experience it, on the other – extricate it, get it out of context. Through the books on plant physiology and scientific materials. I am attracted to design experiences. Presenting phenomena in a tangible and concrete way. On the other hand, I can’t get away from the aesthetic form of my work. 

I want to close everything I experience in the form of drawing, painting, graphics or sculpture. I try not to limit myself to one tool. I experiment with digital graphics, monotypes. I often uses plant matter, which can be both a tool and a medium.
