About my work

My DREAMSCAPES are formed by dreams, thoughts and the visual information that is fired at us every day. I create these DREAMSCAPES in my ‘visual diary’, on large paper or on canvas using mixed media: collage technique, by painting and drawing with pastel chalk. Textures, structures and layers are created, it is an organic process.

The landscapes grow through layers of images, shapes and structures from the visual material that I encounter through various media. I use photos of film and TV stills, images and texts from magazines and newspapers, but also plastic waste and organic material that I find. As a visually oriented person, I am both stimulated and overwhelmed by visual pollution and I feel the need to process, transform and translate this bulk of image information and materials that I find into a virtual landscape.

It is a personal, logical and natural process. An exploration of experimenting with forms, materials and techniques, in which the shaping and the story that I want to tell reinforce each other.
