Talking about her pieces, the artist reflects: “The most difficult part in creating a new piece is to know when to stop designing when to leave it alone. I call my design process Organic Minimalism as a reminder to focus equally on the empty spaces, the voids as on the material and color– much like a painter's canvas."
