Artist Statement
Textiles are the way I express myself, they are my passion, my vision, they are the oxygen that keeps me going. When I am working, the world dissolves and my mind takes over. Creation is fulfilling, while worries and concerns disappear.

I look to abstract from what surrounds me, be it buildings or scenes that impinge onto my imagination, a fire, a flood, a reflection upon the water or on a building. I ask myself questions, how can I represent that which I’m seeing, how can I simplify it and still convey the feeling or the image.
