About The Artist

I use many different media, I often use printing, and tracing in my work,"

My Work

  

“Memory is only the result of selected elements of real events. My work examines the layers that obscure and make difficult any true clarity in remembrances. My work captures the qualities of first impressions; the honesty, distortions and abbreviations that come with our first time experiences; the notion of a glimpse and how it is remembered through screens of personal associations, assumptions and prejudices.  I explore the world of my memory and try to freeze-frame my experiences into a work of art.”
