As a result she feels unresistable need to react by making experiments of things we can do out of material that is called ”trash”.

Artist's Thoughts ”Saltwashed trash with it’s brilliant shades of green, blue and orange, boosts my creativity. With my art and design I want people to realize that what we call trash is in fact an valuable resource in creating unique design and art.”
