ARTIST STATEMENT

ABOUT ME

In my work, I depict aspects of everyday reality and social life. I address the seemingly small and abstract things that, in my view, are relevant aspects of everyone's life. Things such as phrases, wordplay, moments, take-ins, experiences, ideas, beliefs, and ways of communication I show as relevant. 

Drawing is the starting point for all my projects. I use it in painting, stitching, collage and mixed media. For me, the art process is experimenting with various art and non-art materials and finding new solutions.
