I find the natural world very inspiring and beautiful. I collect animals and insects that have died of natural causes, clean, mould and cast them in precious metals. This process is about preserving beauty. My intention is to create surprising and lasting objects from the remains of the living. Mixing semi-precious stones and fresh water pearls with cast flora, skulls, bones and claws, creates a beautiful contrast between beauty and death.
