Between the Imaginary and Real

For as far as I can remember I have always been drawing. Things became a bit serious when I was about 5 or 6 yo and my teacher reported to my mum that instead of solving my maths additions and subtractions, which at that time were all about adding and taking away farm animals, I was spending the time drawing them in detail.

Later on in life I studied graphic design and ended up working as a print designer for textiles. The aesthetics of my work have been influenced by both, graphic design and fashion.

I believe my work sits in a place between the imaginary and real. What inspires me the most is people, human behaviour and the human psyche. My work takes a lot of inspiration from my own dreams and the language of the unconscious.
The symbolism of myths and fairy tales is something I have been researching for a while and I feel very passionate about. The more I get to know about their interpretation the more I feel I am gaining a better understanding of my inner self and certain human patterns and behaviour.

I hope you enjoy my prints as much as I enjoyed making them.

Thank you!
