I am like a bird, foraging. Everywhere I go I look around and discover objects, which to me are little gems, I have an eye for the smallest details. At junk markets and jumble sales and also on holidays I often stumble upon beautiful finds that get a place in my studio, like a nicely shaped branch, a stone, but also a funny ethnic figure. I surround myself with these found objects. (Sub)consciously I include the vibe of these little gems in my works of art.
