Participant of the “KunstKamer Delft” Spring edition 2019; a weekend show in the monumental privat house on Oude Delft 210 in Delft.

Her sculptures are based on the mythical animals that play a role in the Mabinogion, the most important mediaeval literature of Wales, where she grew up on a farm.Yet these animals are not simply an illustration of the stories.Their sober colours and expressive stances represent a collective image, stored in the memory of anyone who has ever read fairytales, legends and myths.They are creatures which appeal to the imagination and evoke associations with dark forests. She shapes her pieces by hand, giving each creature its own unique character.
