I make work about the body and natural environment that develops through writing, photography, movement and visual art process. I work as an aerialist out of joy and a love for physical challenges, tying virtuosity to grounded storytelling and community projects.
Holistic minded. Crafts-woman.

FOLLOW ME ON:
A hybrid proposition combining journal excerpts, explorations of dreams, and photographic essays, Spring FREEZE brings intuition back to the artistic process. Testament to unraveling the author’s chronic pain over the last decade, it can also be understood as an emancipation journey from the boundaries we too often put on ourselves. Through a series of reflections on social issues and the passing of seasons, recollection of personal events – as real as the reader needs them to be – and an essential connection to the dream world, we are invited to ponder over the essence of human race, its limitless resilience and the power of the artistic gesture, regardless of its nature, to overcome the obstacles.
