I love to experiment with papier mache, plaster, ceramic, printmaking, acrylic and mixed media creating an explosion of colour, playing with forms and deep metaphoric meaning. In every one of my artworks, behind colours, shapes and textures, you will find an emotional, personal story.
I am inspired by papier mache as a magical transformation, from nothing to something. I like to integrate animal shapes with human faces, as well as using vibrant colours and combinations of patterns from other cultures to express the un-expressed. These sculptures have the objective of making you smile.
