Inspiration for my work Texture, colors, unimaginable materials! For the past 20 years those three words describe my work.
It fascinates me to explore how non- traditional art materials can be used to create my art pieces, nature allows me to incorporate all kinds of materials. I work primarily with wood, acrylics, wood burner, real leaves.
I love the moment when people touch my work to feel the texture because that is the moment when they can feel my passion for art.
