For the past four years I have been exploring the body-mind-emotion connection, and it has had a major influence in my art work. I took an interest in costume sculptures during my BA course (costume design for theatre), which then lead me to develop an art project, Costumotions, in which I combine costumes and mental health. Through my project, I am hoping to raise awareness on how important it is for us to express our emotions, to maintain healthy body and mind.

There where I care for people, I am also a sustainable artist and try to use only recycled materials in my work.
