My education and many advanced training courses, from classical painting, sculpture, etc., to working with many international glass artist have shaped my way of working and influenced my work. In many of my pieces I work across different techniques and since this work is often not feasible alone, in a team with colleagues and friends. Storytelling is at the forefront of my pieces, but abstract designs, installations and glass design also complement my spectrum.
