ARTIST STATEMENT


I create paper collages on wood panels.
My process starts with selecting high-quality art prints, cutting them out, arranging and glueing them onto a wood panel.
I create detailed and colourful portraits. My work explores inspiring public figures, quotes from well-known art and my own photographed subjects.
I’m deeply influenced by women who have challenged the status quo; changemakers who have accomplished inspiring achievements. I like to give them the spotlight they deserve and to provoke conversations about feminism and female empowerment. I aspire for beauty, harmony and balance to convey a nourishing aesthetic pleasure. Working with other artists’ art as my palette enables me to connect deeply with the art that I love while finding my own visual voice in the process. In other words; I express myself through colour, pattern and texture by quoting art that is meaningful to me.
