My work is a poetic merging of different things: a composition of cultural artifacts and natural objects.
In our time, it is good to embrace opposing and coexisting ideas: l like to remix art and challenge historical narratives.

"I find my inspiration in morphology, nature and the cosmos. I do not study the shapes or structure of celestial bodies, animals and flowers,
but try to visualize forms of human life and lineages, like a botanical system, a group of related elements as a whole.
All mothers, daughters and sisters are like flowers. They carry the history, the birthplaces, the genes and the culture of their family".
