In the symbolic language of the artist the tree is, as the
human being, a creature of two worlds. The roots
being in something holy, incomprehensible and inexplicable,
to feel good, human needs myths and tales, where the ritual
and societal encounter strengthens, reforms and maintains the
awareness that there is also positive meaning in the world.
In creating her own, personal entity of significant elements
from different cultures, she aims at finding the universal humanity,
something all human have in common. By assembling the most interesting
and beautiful pearls found she gets, almost by definition, close
to the innermost secrets of the human soul.
