Through my work I depict ideas through subtle hints and allusions, creating an ambiguous collage of fragments and details. My range of imagery deals fundamentally with the subject matter of identity (ethnicity, gender, age, sexual orientation, childhood, class), shaped by an individual perspective. My work is deeply influenced by personal memories, dreams, and objects, presented with baroque qualities of ornamentation and adding a dash of kitsch. Dolls and figurines are my main subjects and through their eyes I am able to depict a fantasy world filled with color, vibrancy, texture and endelss artistry.
