It's my dream women will grow like flowers pushing through the glass ceiling.

Its my dream that women will grow like flowers pushing through the glass ceiling. I made this work as I’ve felt shocked by women’s rights being violated globally. I so want to change this. I wish for women to be respected, admired and cherished as we do with flowers.

Criminalizing abortion is a crime in itself. It violates the basic human rights to health, equality and freedom of women and healthcare providers. So save lives and protect safe abortion practice to all women. Inspired by  Rubens' sketches I like women to grow like flowers. Rising up!

Dear artlovers,
Let’s party and celebrate!!
Saturday 16th of July, Muriel Mager of Contour Gallery and yours truly are throwing a party to celebrate the exhibition ‘MAKE LOVE NOT WAR - the Power of the Flower’. From 3 PM till 5 PM
The party is in celebration of my new and fresh collaboration with Contour Gallery and we look back on Photo Basel, which really caught the eye. Read what the British Guardian wrote about it.
We can also tell you about our encounters and adventures in heat-tormented Celleno (IT) last month, during the exhibition ‘Incontro’.
We’d like to hear about your Summer stories too.
Maybe you know North sea Jazz festival? My work 'Fruits the Rococo’ is jazzing along at the exhibition ‘Empowerment’, together with works of art by other tough female artists. 
And last but not least, we'll present my latest works, such as Aturalia, (2022) and Nartificialia, (2022).
