I am inspired by what is common, ordinary, mutual and colloquial. Through my everyday life I describe reality, and have been trying over the years, to relate to the world around me from a very personal perspective. As I gather and interpret the impulses from my surroundings and transform them into objects that reflect them, I often collect materials that are part of my everyday life. Among such ordinary materials is paper, the most fre-quently used by me. I make use of its properties: lightness, transience and imperma-nence and the roles associated with it. I occupy the space that I define, occasionally I mark it and draw it
out with the use of glues, stitches and signs.
