“My work is mainly concerned with the feminine, and what it means to be a woman, with a special focus on girlhood, pregnancy and motherhood. I look at how self-image, body image and perceptions of the feminine self become distorted through what is being mirrored to us in a society that is so obsessed with the female image. My images represent in most part manifestations of emotional and feeling states, quietly making the invisible more visible. Throughout my work, I also explore themes of love and fear, death and transformation, gender, relationship, and dreams.”
