Carry On

Artist’s Statement

I am a cis-woman, but I try as much as my understanding allows to speak about feminist issues from the broadest perspective possible. Obviously, my works are reflections on things that have happened either directly to me or to my close ones; but when I think about the essence at play in the actions that I try to denounce in my art, I try to erase disparity to make sure the works can have a broader impact on the public.
