 "The creation of artworks is a lengthy voyage of discovery for an artist, who repeatedly knows, understands and finds herself. For me, this journey began by marvelling at people and nature, i.e. the microcosm and the macrocosm. When an artist ventures onto new paths, she wants to rekindle the flame of enthusiasm and creativity, and she is naturally also aware of the risks. With perseverance, optimism and zest for action, she wants to broaden her horizons, so she can acquire new skills and abilities for the achievement of her artistic goals."
