Artist Statement

My artwork has the same underlying theme across the different materials: they always explore the concept and raw pain of grief, everyday fatigue and romanticism of day to day tasks.


Although the concept is rather morbid and sad, my work aims to express the opposite of that by using bright, happy colors and almost a dreamlike narrative of subjects. In my collage work I love to use the subjects as exploration of these themes, to convey the message that in our everyday world pain and sadness are almost inaudible and silent, except if you look closely enough, or if you bothered to look at all.


For my textile mixed media work, my embroidery stitches the message of heartbreak that exists in between the folds and lines of the paint strokes. Seen in small scales and in groups, the suffering seems to offer a sense of the sufferer’s strength and beauty.

I almost always prefer to use found images and recycled or reclaimed items for my work. I feel that it adds to the story and character of what I am trying to express. Used textiles always have a story to them and their fine wear and tear contribute to the fragility of human emotions.
