She says her aesthetic is embossed by a mix of this and that, depending on what she is fond of at that moment. And right now it’s “colourful electric cords, plaster, 90’s tank tops, and woodstains. Marble is also great because of its pattern and it comes in various appearances.I like using marble to mix with other features. Hard against soft, liquid against solid.”
It’s this kinship that exists through differences that appeals to her, and often her images, as well as a more recent project, Akin Collection, which has her designing furniture, give a broader view of what relationships between objects might be.
“It’s about the importance in contrasts, how contrasts can complement and accentuate features”.

“I like to try new stuff and challenge myself with harder and harder 3D-modellnig. When the setting, space and light are made I think of what atmosphere the picture should sense. I know that the pictures tend to be quite graphic but I also want create a space and let the intrinsic properties of the materials shine through.”
And indeed shine they do.
