"Shaping clay for functional pottery or creating new containers for Ikebana, seeing them coming alive with flowers and branches, sharing different techniques, and always learn something new and enriching, has become a real passion.

Working and learning from different artists has been an extraordinary experience, and an ever larger opening to the world and people.

During our years in Singapore, I was privileged to participate at several exhibitions with Master Potter Dr. Iskandar Jalil. His works of art, of worldwide reputation, were an inspiration and an encouragement for future exhibitions. They lead me to a solo exhibition at the Galerie Gen Paul in Montmartre/Paris.

Pottery and Ikebana became the link to new friends and extraordinary sources of happiness."
