My work is influenced by the aesthetics of contemporary architecture and goldsmithing. The approach to construction and design is defined by the juxtaposition of wood, metal, concrete, glass and stone, in architecture and interior, as well as the idea of combining rough and precious materials in the art of jewellery.
I am attracted to hectic cities with their variety of cultural and design influences. Finding natural elements being incorporated into the context of modern public spaces, I gradually gained a more profound appreciation for raw and natural materials, such as wood and other forms 'that could be brought from forest'. I treat them as trophies and notice their additional strength when placed in a man-made context, such as gallery or exhibition space.
Through the healing process of painting, I extract and intensify moods. I omit human figure in order to materialise pure contemplation.
