” The engine of my work is fueled by my own processes of life, which pierce through my singular and collective experiences that I capture in my pictures. I play around with different identities of transgressive femininity and those concepts around my sexuality that conform my own trajectory.
My pictures lack conscious intentionality in the beginning, they get elaborated as I perfect my occupation and they burst in a moment of inspirational spark. This is created by an impulse shot in my creative space which is mostly my bedroom, used as a personal hiding place where I am my own model: naughty at times, often nostalgic and always irreverent. Following a set of original aesthetic and expressionist criteria, I recreate either gloomy environments inhabited by melancholy or colorful scenes filled with my attitude, which always share the intimacy of my bedroom and my body.”
