Together practice and research, as well as her role as educator form the strong basis for her work; for showing what illustration is and can be within present communication.
“In recent years I’ve extended my illustration practice into a much wider variety of expressions, not wanting to be restrained by style or medium. In some cases ‘getting the message across’ meant designing entire events to illustrate a point or commission other artists to express the ideas”.
“My understanding of the true potential of illustration, lead to a personal visual design approach beyond a single medium, beyond pictures and into the research of illustration now and in the future.”
