Through my work, I explore the quotidian, my everyday relationship with what surrounds me. Little and intimate happenings or places inspire me. They are an intrinsic part of my work.
Often I refer to memories of those instants; it is a selective and conscious process for preserving.
The use of Fabric, embroidery and paint has become an essential part of my work, and they are my words. How I make them interact, complete the sentences and help writing the story.
