My works are self-portraits that comment on femininity, displacement and gender roles. Seemingly delicate and fragile, and yet resilient, my works explore emotion through the investigation of ethereal and formal qualities of everyday materials. This process of transformation is echoed in my videos, in which drawings and images are changed through time.
My work is about drawing connections between moments and places and discovering the hidden beauty in them. New meanings are created through the juxtaposition of eastern and western sensibilities. My interest in capturing images inspires me to create work that is whimsical, humorous, or ironic, expressing different emotions about my relation to the subject matter.
