Now working on paper , collage is an important element in my work again , which creates layers of ‘’skin’’ . Shapes can be moved around . The idea has a better chance of being developed without being forced . Contrasting elements and chaos meet each other , making new shapes and images . Wax lines are kept on the surface and in other places the wax is melted with a hot iron to keep the underlaying papers into place . Transparent papers , like tissue paper , create depth , overlapping each other .

I like to emphasize the material quality and the tactile values in my work , using the specific technique of Batik in an autonomous way .
