About the work

I find my inspiration in my immediate surroundings, among olive groves and vineyards in the north of Portugal where I live since 2000. I collect all kinds of natural materials, for example, eucalyptus, olive leaves, the galls and everything that is new for me as a Dutch woman. Then I test the materials for usability and durability. Finally I often paint them in bright colors. The combination with copper wire has led to many three-dimensional works.
