Some questions I pose through my work are: What makes us who we are? How do you feel about where you come from? How do you love? How do you relate? How is our identity constructed? What do we do with what we are made up of? I am interested in exploring our psychosomatic behaviors, and the ways we live with our identity, complexity and contradictions. In my work I am searching for meaning in our memories, the choices we make, in this world and who we are.
