She says about her own art the following: “Other than being a four-walled space, a house or a room for me is a special venue where windows open to strange views, memories, dreams and my thoughts. It is a place that I construct upon the idea of “home making”, where the individual hides himself, and at the same time it becomes an open space which gives clues about the identity of its resident.”
