My artwork is symbolic/abstract with figurative details that refers to my connection to all the elements. My attention goes to the hidden forms, from micro and macro perspectives. I use wood, paper, metal, paint, textile, mix of soft and hard materials that challenges and allows me to discover new aspects. Kinetic sculptures are often made together with Frank Hietbrink. We would like our sculptures to be inspired on nature, interactive and playful.
