I’ve always felt that photography connected me to the world I saw through the lenses. With the camera in my hands, it was like the minutes stopped, my eyes were lost in the details of the landscape and I surrendered myself. However, over 10 years as a photographer, this feeling of connection deepened, I reconnected with myself and my work developed to new formats beyond the limits of photography. Today, I experiment and create with different medias so I do not have any barriers for my artistic expression.

My work has become an extension of who I am, what I feel and what I believe. My connection, now, is more intense, truer and I feel free to express myself through images, words, brushstrokes or even unstructured embroidery.
