I am a Textile artist and the overarching topic of my work is how life experiences and thoughts leave visible and invisible marks that influence our wellbeing.
My work is informed to a great extent by personal experiences, for example, moving from my homeland to another country was a turning point in my life, as well as my childhood memories; they all make me reflect about the past and the present. I search for ways of making connections between those experiences and memories, translating the invisible marks that affect human health into tactile pieces.
I believe in the intimacy of handmade processes and the individuality of an artefact created by human hands rather than mass-produced by automated means.
My aim is to develop my career by creating one-off pieces and site-specific installations. I am also interested in using my skills and learn new ones while working with communities.
