Currently, my main theme is animism. I work with images that visualize invisible entities such as souls, spirits, ghosts and gods.

I am influenced by folk masks from Africa and Papua New Guinea, as well as Mexican folk art sculptures such as alebrijes.
I try to express the strangeness and divinity of the shapes in folk masks and the bright colors in alebrijes.

The technique I use is crochet. When I watch the way the yarn is woven and the shapes gradually appear from the edges, I feel as if an invisible presence is manifesting itself there.
