My passion for paper comes from its unique characteristics. Easily obtainable and with endless possibilities. Being transparent and fragile in some cases, while dense and massive in others. I sculpt and paint with paper pulp made from various kind of paper, both existing or self-made natural fibres, with the addition of pigments. Using organic materials has an essential role in my work. Creating a bond with nature allows me to investigate the materials in different ways; helping me to address organic shapes, textures and colours of nature, whilst at the same time addressing environmental issues too. My inspiration comes from everything that I perceive, usually amazed by the beauty of our surrounding nature and the world in general. There are so many shapes, colours and textures. My work is natural, organic, not polished. My visual language is mainly figurative, and I use organic forms a lot. I often combine multiple disciplines: art, design, fashion and utensil. I am a member of IAPMA (International Association of Hand Papermakers and Paper Artists), and I participate in (International) exhibitions on a regular basis.
