Statement

Choreographies of the perpetual dance of life.

After 15 years of successful Contemporary Art Jewellery, I decided 10 years ago to take it a step further and develop a body of work still inspired by the human body, but without the inherent functional aspect of jewellery.

At first, it was the movement as energy that interested me. From it came the Graphic Structures.

But slowly the human shape started to emerge, thanks to the drawings that I made.

Silhouettes on the move, in space or relating to each other.

Contemporary dance has been an important source of inspiration for its emphasis on the human daily movements and gestures of the body.

Metal remains my favorite material for its flexibility and resilience, as well as the technical rigor involved. Shaping with my hands remains an important feature of how I work. It is the hands that give the material its meaning and emotion.
