Artist Statement

I work mostly in video and photography mediums, exploring subjects and ideas based on self-representation and questions regarding authenticity and identity. I am also interested in the representation of female behavior, appearance, and sexuality in art and society, trying to challenge different stereotypes and roles. My goal is to explore different mediums as well as to delve deeper myself and my identity in order to transform those ideas into artworks that challenge the audiences, their stereotypes, and encourage them to observe things in different ways.
