How did you pursue craft after university?
I had some difficult years working in trend forecasting and as a set designer’s assistant, while I was searching for my path. Eventually I built up the courage to say, it is this or nothing, and I began to develop my own style and worked with interior designers and architects.
Do you master your pointillism technique?
The technique yes, but I love trying new things. It is a slow technique but the creation time allows me to see things and the work evolves in a way that would not be possible with a faster technique. The tactile experience is satisfying.

Do you see yourself as craftswoman?
I view myself as both an artisan and an artist. I don’t consider myself as a contemporary artist, I like decorative arts and I do creative aesthetic research, so I think I am on the border. I use a wide range of artistic references and I am inspired by photography of organic shapes like the ocean, especially the extremes of macro and micro photography.
When is one of your works good in your eyes?
For me, it is about having the shapes emerge and come to life. It is difficult to explain, because it is a feeling. But it is a balance between not too much and not too minimal. I like it when something in the work is undefined, something that leaves you guessing.
