  • About the work

    In my recent practice, I am exploring the female nude through painting, drawing, and printmaking. Ancient Egyptian and Greek Sculpture is the starting point for my characters, composed as tall, lean and almost adolescent-like figures who share simple, geometric forms and are life-sized or larger than life. Sphinxes and Sirens, mythological creatures that would seduce and devour men, become themes that often appear in my work. These, allow me to investigate the potential of the female form, discover my own view towards it as a female maker, and engage the viewer through inviting him or her to participate in the act of looking.
