I work with drawing, painting, textile, sculpture and animation. Themes in recent years have been death, transience, anxiety and obsessive thoughts, but the works are open to interpretation.

“… whether one is mediocre or exceptional, if an individual presents himself honestly, it concerns more or less everyone. It is impossible to shed light on one’s own life without illuminating others here and there. "
Simone de Beauvoir
