She developed her artistic skills self-taught. 40 years ago she started as the owner of a wool shop with imaginative designs for sweaters. From this early inspiration her graphic drawings emerged, which captivate with their intense colors, organic shapes and dynamic abstractions. They almost challenge transmission to a wide variety of media.
The color graphics have been used in a variety of ways: as book covers and postcards, as prints for notebooks and T-shirts, picture frames, woodenstools, wooden boxes, puzzles and placemats. The graphics can also be acquired as table sets. Ika also worked with wood. Her sculptures remain close to the organic shape of the piece of wood and express its versatile abstract features in a lively way.
Ika’s work show an extraordinary synthesis of shape, form and message, regardless of the medium in which she worked.
