The book Maternity is the reflection of an inner journey through the emotions in the life of a pregnant woman. One day she herself was brought into the world, then as a young girl she developed into a teenager and later into an adult woman, now about to reproduce herself. The longawaited child presents herself in poetic words and starts to grow with thoughts that span the globe. The paintings and poems represent the moments and changes a woman experiences, as well as the interaction between nature and the individual. Along with the exceptional paintings the poems breathe the pregnant air of the fertilized words.
