My artworks have been displayed at numerous independent exhibitions, feminist events and art fairs organised by groups such as the Nasty Women collective, Adept Gaze collective and TedxUCLWomen among others.
I use art as a research tool and as a catalyst of positive change in order to tell the truth and make it visible, empowering people. The world view that is created by my body of work is based on informed arts based research and a consistent constructive dialogue which are at the core of a critical pedagogy.
My daily practice as a painter and musician creates a special, wise, free and critical space in which one can feel, contemplate and reflect deeply in opposition to the busy environments shaped by other compulsory social functions and roles. By exploring important topics (like personal and global health, freedom, human rights, agency, love, relationships, rules, growth mindset and learning among others) and shaping new meanings my work brings to life new knowledge and invites people to shape healthy, rich, fulfilling and meaningful lives.
I combine, transform and question ideas, complex feelings and facts in order to create new authentic experiences for myself and for the people. The images I create can be industrious or visceral. They are honest and necessary. They always look forward to integrate the unconscious mind. They also help to re-think habits, roles and rules while also healing and promoting healthy counterculture.
