Artist Statement

What I like the most is leading creative workshop as a teacher, and I also pursue this passion in a more personal way at home.

It is all about paper. All kind of paper. Books, newspaper, cardboard, wrapping paper, papier-mâché, tissue paper, and more.

I have been working with this medium for a long time now. Making cards, scrapbooking, stamping, altering books, gluing, cutting, sewing, or folding.

It's a material so humble and versatile that a creative eye can transform it into something surprising and wonderful.

Right now, I am mostly using books, old books, given books, used books, lost books. I give them a new appearance, a new form, a new style, and suddenly the final shape takes a new meaning.

But nothing is set forever. You can always expect new surprising things!
