Biography
‘Approaching my work with playfulness and an intuitive curiosity, I create multilayered pieces on cotton canvas, loose linen and smaller pieces of paper; inviting for a dialogue between the scale and the subject. Letting go of any inhibitions in the choice of materials, I long for textures, meanings and a sense of memory — from acrylic, oil pastels and papercuts to glitter and threads. In a conflicted world that feels deeply saturated, I put a special emphasis on sharing a blended, unfiltered narrative in all its depth and authenticity.’
