"My work is a journey to explore the universe of words, a world where signs, writing and painting create poetic narratives that tell memories of my life. My artworks include fragments from my diary that I overlap digitally, it includes stories, thoughts, and poems that I have written and collected during my life. It is an open visual diary, in which I leave traces of my soul."
