Working for several years mainly in photography, I developed artistically towards using different media with a focus on figurative painting on paper and canvas.

In my art I basically deal with personal and common crisis, vulnerabilities and fears and resources to face them. I believe that an artist should act as a messenger, not mainly talking about her opinions but providing the public with sources of inspiration and unconventional views. Therefore I search for "speaking" images which remain basically enigmatic and leave a space for individual interpretations. The pictorial "vocabulary" I develope functions as keys to layers of reception possibilities and symbolic meaning. Each work remains an experiment with an own independent "voice", product of a process of clarification.
