What got you interested in polymer clay as a medium?
I think it's a versatile medium and most of all is waterproof. Paper clay was my first clay medium but it's not waterproof and so soft so it's kind of limiting for me. Polymer clay was not widely available in Indonesia so I stopped doing it for more than 10 years. Ever since I got polymer clay in my hand I loved it! The stiffness work for me as it holds its shape so well. It opens up so many possibilities.

What inspires you to create?
Nature, challenges, something people said.

Do you have a favorite technique?
Ribbon sculpting.

Of everything you have created which is your favorite?
Probably my latest creation as it combines so many different materials.
