I create two and three dimensional work that deals with the issues of painting, space and movement. As a former professional dancer and now visual artist I strive to combine the different ways of expressing that occupy the space of my imagination. With the traditional idea of painting as a starting point, I introduce plastic, fabric, objects and photography into the equation, to create a place for the flat and the solid to meet the unfamiliar in a recognizable environment. I want to engage with art in a way that has a value in the intellect yet leaves freedom for the childlike careless way of looking at art without the burden of history. By placing myself in the uncomfortable position where what I create does not always correspond to my visual satisfaction, I am tapping into unknown territory where the mind and the eye seem to be in perfect harmony with the unbalanced reality.
