Leadership and management theories, the integrative approach by Hilarion Petzold, process-oriented psychology and the archetype concept constitute the basis of her work.
As an artist her sculptures are bodies that stand just like people in real life in dialogue with the world. She compares them to physical memory in which the history of life is engraved. “The world is written in our bodies while we are expressing ourselves through these bodies. The appropriation of the world, the incorporation and the nesting in it is something that does not merely happen to us but takes place as a process of mutual creation.”
