Artist statement

I am creating from my emotions towards a matter.

I am keen to tell a story.

I am keen to make the viewer think.

I urge to challenge the people looking at my art.

I want to create art which can be looked at by different people and they see different things.

I am interested in the human condition and am currently developing work on the perception of the female role in society. With the viewer as the focus in my creative process, I aim to provoke emotions and reactions through my work. My pieces often express my strong belief in feminism. Another key topic of my work are relationships: to oneself, others, the environment, everything and being which we get in contact with.  I explores topics through an emotional lens.

At the core of my work is the observer who I seek to challenge to re-think, re-consider and re-conclude.
