« For Bombom collection the main inspiration came from my wall “paintings”, crochet creations that stand out from a frame, almost as a landscape that doesn’t belong in a wall and wants to interact with us, with lots of round and fluid shapes, colorful and appealing, with a sense of comfort. Creating a bridge between the museum and gallery spaces and the home environments we live in. »
