Rooted in contemplative, introspective principles, my intuitive creative process draws inspiration from personal history and the surrounding environment, translating inner experiences into a visual narrative. In my current series “Recollections like threads, woven through time”, I delve deeper into the interdependence between dichotomies and opposing views. Through cutting and weaving drawings, I transform dialogues between opposites into a cohesive unity, ultimately harmonizing two opposing ideas.

In their final form, my drawings often seamlessly intertwine into a kind of fabric, a tapestry that not only represents the invisible ties intricately binding our experiences but also speaks to the intricate nature of memory—how chaos and structure dance in alternation, shaping the rhythm of how we remember and forget.
