Photography, assemblage, sculptures, video and objectart.


The intended mise-en-scène has been an important component of her art work. Having started with photographical art, for the last years she has focused on shoe sculptures and assemblages, and turned to a surrealistic way of working. "I just need to assemble the pictures and thoughts of my consciousness and subconsciousness to create a new vision and a new way to see.", the artist says. As Georg Christoph Lichtenberg said, "He, who has eyes to see, sees everything in everything."

Research as well as the study of particular topics play important roles in the artistic realization: to deal with a topic - to eviscerate, to mangle, and to transform - to achieve a new insight. Veiled criticism with a touch of irony is intended.
