Sculpture is a late blooming domain for Birgitte and she has been developing this field in leaps and bounds over this past year (2003).
Paper mache', dough dolls and some casting has been her mediums of choice. The sympathetic and sensuous nature of working with paper and developing its ever increasing scope has made this a new fascinating area of work. Large scale figurative pieces are at present in development, suitable for outdoor use.
Birgitte would certainly be interested in communicating with other artists who are working in similar ways so as to consult and interact.
Etching, computer graphics, drawing, paper pulp, renovating houses, incorporating paint techniques, murals, ceramic tiles, features on doors, colour co-ordination, family history paintings, are just some of the activities she engages in.
