I see moods as images. In my mind my own moods are often represented by places or buildings where I have been. I have visualized this way of thinking through a series of photo collages. The complexity (and simplicity) of moods are expressed through the use of different layers of photographs, which were shot by me in different parts of the world. In the photo collages I want the complexity (and simplicity) of moods to present themselves. I want to leave it to the feelings of the viewer what mood they see.

She uses photography as a mean to stage an idea and to present new perspectives on contemporary subjects. Her photographs are characterized by the use of multiple layers. She creates images that are often different from a direct representation of reality.
