I include in my artwork themes of unity, movement, feminine energy, direction, tension, formality, balance of opposite, expansion, transformation, chaos and release. I use geometric figures; they are simple in construction, define with recognizable boundaries and they are both ordered and free in form.
In my paintings I often find myself using dirty-dull colours as I feel them deeper and more real, closer to home. I take pleasure using plenty of paint, creating impasto surface with bold brush marks, as I feel it completes the spaces and help me find the balance I keep looking for. I look for contrast with colours: light and dark and in this variation I create shapes and spaces that balance each other. Yellow brings the warm feeling of the sun to an otherwise dark and cold space.
In my sculptures I use lighter and more flexible materials. Different types of wire give me both the structural strength and plasticity needed to create shapes, textures and both inner and outer spaces, being honest with the natural property and quality of the materials.
I have felt the need to go bigger both in my painting and sculpture, hence the bigger size canvasses and 'The London Dream' installation, in which again I explore the tension between sharp and curve lines in order to find balance, stability, steadiness and remaining upright, as well as the relationship between them: the space."
