Ulrica's fascination with snakes began when, as a four-year-old, she sat down in a snake nest in a pile of shrubs in her garden and played with the newly hatched snake babies. Her mother was horrified and that memory remained with Ulrica throughout her life.
“The snakes follow me. I make them in clay, in glass, they are in my pictures. It is a mixture of horror and lust. ” - Ulrica Hydman Vallien
