Bio:

I investigate interspecies relationships and envision new connections among animals, plants, minerals, through random encounters that take place during walks or other travels.
I work outdoors and in studio, pulling threads together through drawings, photography, storytelling and painting devices that they themselves question the barrier among human and non-human elements.

Through a series of small drawings, I bring together imprints of observations that take place during my walks. The tension resulting from a requirement of coexistence between the human body and the external objects encountered, is captured through drawing, painting and photography. Walking outdoors becomes a way of contemplating the place and role of the human as an element belonging to an ecosystem.
