While accompanying my husband on a sabbatical abroad I suddenly found myself without studio or the necessary materials to work with.

On the other hand I was surrounded, on a daily basis, with such extraordinary characters that I could not refrain from depicting them.

I decided to create my own materials: papier maché from old newspapers and hair and clothes from discarded rags. Paint was readily available.

In this way a whole series of figurines came into existence that I made into hand puppets for my kids (and now my grandchildren too).

Back home I recently took up this craft again by finding back these relics from the past hidden in a corner and urgently needing restoration.

I saw this as a chance to renew my interest in this ability and explore new horizons.
