The artist herself describes her creative process in such words: «I go farther and farther along my life path, reach out into chaos, pull a thread out of it and spool into an incredible skein and then create my art. Sometimes I make beautiful pieces. It does not have a practical use but exists to make your life brighter, to make amuse, and to captivate you. I should not be careless, because you feel angry and slow your pace.»
