'She’s conceptual. She’s a concept lover, and is dynamic enough to create them, to open doors, to build a soulful bridge for the momentous forms in which vulnerability can manifest itself. That’s her stage, to listen to her ghosts, her afflictions, the fear and the freedom and the shadows trapping all of us. For some… the dreams, the nightmares, the transcendent experiences. It takes one moment, when solitude and loneliness come together, when the human and the natural world are at one... that’s where she takes me. She has a romantic, beautiful and soft signature. Hand made visual poetry, while inner afflictions are radiated.'
