Why did you choose this specific kind of art?
In 1996 I visited a jewellery exhibition that I liked. Then I thought that I could make jewellery too, or other objects, and that’s when I decided to start creating. I love to imagine and express what I have in my mind by creating art, which, unlike architecture, is dependent only on me.
What appeals about using plastic bags?
I like the idea that it’s not necessary to use expensive materials in order to create something; you can transform a simple, inexpensive material into a useful, artistic object. I also want to convey a message about environmental protection by reusing materials to create art.

What techniques do you use?
I started experimenting with the transformation limits of the plastic bag and plastic packaging through folding, using heat as a technique. Often, I have to add an extra piece to complete the project and I use special adhesives or sewing so that it won't be noticeable.
Is there anything people might not realise about your work?
It’s difficult for people to understand how I create my artworks; they don’t realise that I create them using heat. Many people think I add colour to my creations. Another thing they don't know is that no work of mine can be repeated, not even approximately.
