Through her artistic work, she uses nature as a great inspiration. Natures measured rhythm, patterns and textures, simple beauty in relations of shapes, sizes, colors. With her artistic work she wants to emphasize the importance of conscientious and sustainable human interventions in nature, reflecting awareness of their unbreakable reciprocity, so she explores various ways of creating in collaboration with natural materials and principles.
