Major project:

"All I could see was blue and you"

A site-specific installation in the Sackler building, including a series of seven paintings and two sculptures.


  • My work has thus far been primarily painting but it also extends to include other media and installations. 

    I am interested in the sacred feminine, in mysticism and religious practices. My work inquires into symbols and the underlying systems that shape our understanding.
