Artist statement:

My brush is my sword.
My art focus is on women empowerment.
I use a diverse array of media, constantly evolving, such as painting, installation, sculpture, collages, sketchbooks and video, paper, canvas, cloth, tears, dolls, Louis Vuitton bags, clay, barbed wire, old 18th century missal, maps, furniture, whatever I find that can express the non-intelligible.
