Inspiration


Inspiration for the beaded jewelry come from nature - often the Ocean and its
lifeforms. An abundance in color, size and movement express my gratitude toward
life. I want to grace the human body with nature's beauty, as reflected in all
pieces.

The architectural pieces capture my philosophy in silver metal. This material
suggests a certain rationality, as well as a sense of abstraction. The city of New
York has provided primary inspiration. Japanese architecture has also played an
influential role in this work.

I use aluminum for many pieces. I often combine it with lighter materials, such as
silk thread, suggesting sea-grass, or artificial flowers. Aluminum has very special
qualities, which lie between the masculine and the feminine. My goal is to
harmonize the power of metal with its qualities of weightlessness, reflectivity and
flexibility.


    "Before my eyes I see huge sculptures moving in open space. They seem to be
a connection between our World and the Infinite. To me they capture the
language of the cosmos. I let myself flow with their play of colors and movement,
their transparency and weightlessness. With their rhythm I bring my spirit into
harmony.

    I see my work as a door, that leads in and out at the same time, a connection
between the conscious and the unknown. The sculptures help me to sense this
unknown world and wearing them I feel directed and more sensitive to my inside
and to what is around me and I hope to become more aware of.

A body sculpture is with you all the time you are wearing it, it is present and that
way you are subconsciously reminded all the time to sensitize.

That is why every detail of the sculpture is important".
