“Erasing memories“ (2012) is a double self-portrait inspired by a van Eyck painting and with an engraved, but later erased, image of the artist’s mother (1929 – 1994) to whom she bears a significant resemblance. „Memories – flowers and butterflies“ (2011) has, as a background, the ornament of white flowers from her mother’s wedding dress of  year 1954.
