In her work she combines her two fields of expertise creating multi-sensory stories on scents. These olfactive stories are told by fragrances and objects, mostly created in ceramic. The fragrances used in the objects are originating from natural essential oils.
“The objects and installations I make incorporate natural scents (raw materials). My special interest are the effects of these scents on humans. Through my art I try to communicate this broad spectrum of odor perception. With each work of art I investigate the effects of a specific scent. This involves chemical composition, a historical or cultural context, an individual or universal scent experience. In my role as Ambass’Odor, I like to represent the various "voices" of natural scents. In my lectures, trainings and articles, I pass on knowledge on this subject. ”
The inspiration for her olfactive stories comes from a 'cross-reference' of historical and traditional plant use, plant myths, botanical facts, modern properties and experiences of users of essential oils. The artistic search for symbols or an archetypical expression of this is evident. In this way each object becomes a visual and olfactory metaphor of psychodynamic processes of the fragrance.
