When asked about what drives her she said: A major driving force for me, is that I love the power of an image. The way it can communicate beyond the written word, bypassing our heads. The way images can stand alone, or simply enhance or add a new and fresh angle to text. Images for me, are incredibly exciting and I think, on a larger scale, very important to culture/society. On the other hand, a good cup of coffee will also keep me going… oh and maybe a borbon biscuit.
