Since 2000 I have been working as a freelancer in my own studio in Zurich. I produce an elaborate collection of boxes and make cardboard works for artists, restorers and a variety of clients. In 2010 I started with the more artistic work and since then I have been an artist and a craftswomen. My work has been shown in exhibitions and has been purchased by the art-collection of the canton Zurich and the Museum für Gestaltung Zurich.
