Being an artist is a huge part of my life. I create because I am forced to create. Sometimes this comes in the form of writing, other times I make art.

 

It comes from deep inside of me and flows through me. There's no option. If I don't do it, it puts my soul into a dilemma, as long as it takes to bring forth a piece of art which wants to be shown.

 

Art is our one true global language, that knows no nation and favours no race or class. It speaks to our need to reveal, heal and transform. It transcends our ordinary lives and lets us imagine what is possible.

 

I mainly work with sculptures, installations and picture objects. After a long time working as an illustrator I now like working hands on with my materials. My art explores feminine and social themes as well as identity, with a fascination for the mundane and everyday things. Household objects as well as things taken out of our daily life are mostly preferred. The occupation with the trivial and the ordinary in things is a search for the worth which lies beyond the norm. It's also about diving into the monotony of everyday life, with the need to flee from it, to gain distance and then return to it once again with a new view of it. The search for meaning in the ordinary mundane is a search for identity, it defines our existence. When I tarn something it is diving into a world where inhibitions can be revoked. With nylon tights I disguise something, taking away the reality of it.

 

My ideas are the most important thing about my art. I make a drawing before I start playing with the chosen material. I always know when a piece is finished because I start smiling. Each person who sees art, looks at it with his or her very own preferences, history and interpretations. My motivation is the need to make a meaningfull contribution to people on a social and aesthetic level.
