“When I was a child, I used to draw and paint and I also enjoyed sculpturing with clay. I attended Waldorfschule, which particularly supports artist potential and graduated with arts being my major subject. The emphasis was on drawing technique of batik.
Creating compositions of various forms and colors I found “Art Nouveau” to be most fascinating, which influenced the work I accomplished during my studies of fiber craft and textile design.

In the 1980’s I saw the Parque Guell in Barcelona for the first time and was impressed by the mosaics there. But another twenty years passed until I realized my first mosaic works to decorate my house in 2002 – and found my passion; working extensively on walls or sculptures. I also like to design patterns and forms in a harmonic style.
For me patterns and harmonic forms are a connection to the old cultures of the world. Like the sense in times of “Art Nouveau” it is also important for me, the unity from art and life.”
