About me

As a young artist, I am still searching for my own style. However, in my personal work I tend to stick to experimental and traditional portraiture, and address social and mental health issues. I am hugely interested in conceptual documentary and documenting the society. A lot of the time I find myself trying to capture all the different ways we express ourselves - whether it’s through fashion, the way we decorate our living and working spaces, or through the objects we own. I am also very interested in emotions and human mind itself. It’s quite an abstract subject, so I try to pus the medium and use it to it’s fullest in order to get a particular feeling through. For example, my last photo-embroidery project was inspired by how proud I feel every time I go home and see how much my friends have grown and blossomed since the last time I saw them. I found that really hard to express just with photographs, so I ended up stitching into them.
