‘I am originally trained as an ecologist, which influences the way I perceive nature and relate to my art practice. The beauty of invisible nature forms the basis of my work and from that beauty I want to draw attention to this fragile nature.
I approach my medium, paper, as a microscope through which I am able to zoom in on very small organisms. In my artistic practice I allow perception to interact and play with my imagination. These interactions create colourful magnified worlds where detailed shapes and patterns connect with one another and with their environment, similar to an ecosystem.’
