'For my works I mainly use natural and everyday materials, rarely artificial ones like plastic for example. They come together in something new where they seem to gain a new identity without completely losing their old. I create my own world with them. Certain materials happen to become synonyms of other words so that there is a story that you can only read if you know the necessary vocabulary.
Travelling is one of my favourite activities, because everything that surrounds me anew, invites me to grow. I enjoy watching people and animals in different environments. I like to observe, to look, when they are moving, flying, crawling, creeping, and jumping…
Each moment is checked and, if interesting, stored in my subconsciousness.
Everything I experience, perceive or find out – I preserve in my mind. But I would be a fool to keep these moments and thoughts just for me, because even though they have their own life inside of me, they are more now, transferred into an object or jewellery piece. They are shared, remembered, they are alive beyond me and that’s the best.'
