Artist Statement

The most amazing thing that has happened to me is to have been born by a woman of great ambition. I have derived so much energy and inspiration from her personality; hence I celebrate my mother (even in death) and other great women making an impact on this planet.

I celebrate hard working women through my work as they engage in dialogue related to being a woman in a society that marginalizes the contribution women make in the growth and stability of our society. My current body of work serves as a source of inspiration, to give hope and encourage women and girls to stay focused, empowered and evoke new realities we face as women.

Basically, I work with metal foil, acrylic and watercolor and my colours are usually vibrant and contrasting dark tunes and vibrant colours.
