She is a researcher and an enthusiast of old glass decorative techniques. She has found her interests mostly in lampworking and the development of her artistic personality follows this method of glass shaping. She is inspired by recognizable forms and motifs, which embody subtly legible visual communication. She uses them in her unique glass objects and glassware to create metaphors, references and meanings.
