ARTIST STATEMENT

I paint with bright colors, making dreamy scenes that see the beauty in everyday life. It’s my way of sharing feelings and catching special moments. I use different materials to layer the canvas, creating worlds that feel timeless. I collect memories like postcards, maps, and stories from my childhood, blending them into my art. Each piece is like a little story, putting together bits of my own experiences.

Understanding where my art will be shown is important. I picture all kinds of people curious about different cultures and loving fairy tales. Talking with visitors, sharing the stories behind my art, and chatting about how cultures still matter today excite me. My art invites you to step into a world of feelings, stories, and culture—a lively party celebrating magic in everyday moments. Thinking about how people and cultures work together influences my art and sparks conversations.

The study of human societies and cultures influences my work, shaping the way I see things. I’m also fascinated by the study of human biological and physiological characteristics, thinking about how our bodies and minds have evolved. These ideas add depth to my art and open up conversations about the connections between our biology, cultures, and stories. Dance is my tool, and the stage is where it happens. Each dance takes people into a special world, like a fairy tale or a personal story. The moving bodies become living art, where feelings, stories, and the magic of dance come together.

As a dancer and artist, I explore how dance and painting connect, catching those quick moments in both. Dance, like a story told with movements, goes beyond just moving—it brings people into a world where feelings and imagination meet. In this dance of colors and moving bodies, I want to make a chat between what you see and what you feel—a picture that shows the magic of moving. Each dance, just like a fairy tale, becomes a special story for the people watching.
