We all wear masks. Masks to pretend, to hide or just to put our best face forward in a Selfie.

Using conflict as a starting point, I allow the materials take over and construct a mask to protect myself. What may start off as an ugly statement, in the end becomes something beautiful.

I transform found and meticulously collected materials into mixed media works. I like to photograph my process and digitally manipulating these images to extend the narrative as part of my personal mythology.

Fragmented identity juxtaposed with the existence of infinite possibilities is a recurring theme in my work.
