I tend to take on an intimate (female) approach in my practice, with a body of work that reflects both one’s society influences/surroundings, and an individual personal maturing process, while playing with the notions of subjectivity and assimilation. Currently, I am focused on a progressive deconstruction of archetypal sexual and women-imagery, by unconventionally revising difficult, socially imposed constraints - a reflection achieved through distinct visual media such as painting, printmaking, collage and video.
