‘I am using my hands to unearth stories.
​The act of scratching, exploring, and digging at the paper allows me to make thoughts and feelings that I will not say out loud concrete and visible.
​​I create a world that I can manipulate and play with.​
From it emerge stories and myths inspired by the details of everyday life. ​
Figures tease and tangle with each other, acting with cruelty and tenderness both.​
My work recently brought me to a dusty futuristic land, where love and violence are ambiguously enacted.’
