Manipulating self-painted paper by sanding, tearing away, gluing over and repainting, gives me a feeling of being totally creative. Handwork experiences with a grandmother, my mother and my older sister stir up an innate drive to create using a tactile technique. I find collaging and decollaging in a minimalist, abstract style very exciting and fulfilling as suppressed images become manifest onto the primed board or heavy paper, which I use as a canvas.
