ABOUT my work
In my work I explore issues that are most pressing in my 21st Century female conscience: displacement, exile and homelessness, memory and history, beauty, fashion and the female body, the place of woman in society. I view expression as a possibility of living within the threshold of those issues which allows me to accept the transitory nature of being, a sort of constant liminality, and “passing through” as a permanent state of being.
