SUBJECTS OF WORK:
She says “Always fascinated by pattern and curves found everywhere around me, as well as the dynamics of the body in motion, I aim to present abstracted human forms in the most aesthetically pleasing and harmonious way. I try to create a balance between movement and stillness, playing with the lines and negative spaces as well as the shape and form of the body itself. I love to capture the essence of a vibrant dance or the split second before a twist or turn. I am passionate about dance, theatre and music, which trigger the ideas for my sculptures. These influences are integral to my work, both in the two and the three dimensional form.”
