She is very much inspired by the ordinary things of everyday life. A wall installation of white paper lace doilies reveals her fascination for the various different patterns, which provide the aesthetical impulse for her colorful drawn figures. Her artistic estrangement of the doilies – purposely arranged in a serial order – leads to absurdity. At the same time, she tells cheerful cartoon-like stories, explaining i.e. ceremonial Chinese traditions. A note of irony comes evident.
