HANDY is another of small size "Felties" as I call them. It got its name because it fits so nice in your hands! As for all my sculptures made from felt(coarse domestic sheep wool in black and white) is haptic and cosy and it's perfect to travel with. it's so small you can have it with you wherever you go! Even to your work!! I was enjoying when making it by playing with texture, form, blind print and line.I was using both: wet and dry felting techniques. I almost prefer the bottom side then the top- however, you can place it as you like.Sometimes depends on mood, doesn't it? As for all felt sculptures it can happen that it will get a bit dusty with time (but not so soon!) and in that case you can gently vacuum clean it or even wash it! that's how you do it: dive it in luke-warm water with some detergent for a while. then rinse it with cold water and blot out the excess water with the towel, then dry in the air.Because it's felted it won't shrink or change colour ! Felt is ecological and friendly material. Don't be afraid of washing it if necessary!

I'm interested in many things and I'm on the constant search of new ways to share my thoughts in the visual language, but also stories, universal human issues, issues concerning women and many more…. Therefore I'm also changing materials and forms in order to express this things! I think I don't have a particular style, because everything is subordinated. to the subject I'm interested in. I tend to shell the majority of »feeling« from the material itself. I use a huge range of materials:from classic sculpting materials (predominately clay, stone, glass bronze) to more contemporary ones, like plastic, fibre, felt, found objects, liquid….. to non-material mediums ( video., sound or animation). If I feel vulnerable I might choose felt to work with ( for "protection"), next time,if I feel like »falling to pieces«, I might decide to make sculptures made of multiple pieces that need to be assembled, or when I'm happy and content, I choose clay or metal, to show how strong I'm feeling…. So, there's clearly lndirect physical evidence of my mood/state on material itself!! I'd divide my work on two main complexes: The intimate (smallish) one and the public / large one. In the past I was interested in figure but also the fragments of the human body like hands, legs, bellybuttons, ears….although I don't work very much on figure nowadays I still return back to it now and then, because it's somehow the eternal source…. as it's for material:clay! I'm particularly interested in space, so I often work on site-specific installations. I love to work in remote places somewhere in the nature. For me it's more important the place , where I work, then how many people will actually see this work at the end…. That counts predominately for the public concept. When I work In small scale , the surrounding space is less important – although,it's never totally excluded- there I put a lot of emphasis on detail. I deal a lot with symbols and surrealistic visual language sometimes my art is very minimal, but sometimes rich in form and colour…There was time when I was quite influenced by Magritte, but also Cubism( after my travel to Africa in eighties) and Brancusi. In time of study also new English sculpture had huge influence on me , like Deacon, Kapoor, Woodrow, Caro , Cragg and many others from that generation! My art usually refers to ( personal) past events or premonition of the future or has critical, even sarcastic note to the modern society.
