Artist’s statement

My work is a highly intuitive and subjective unconventional self-portrait that explores my imagination. Through the paintings, the books and the soft sculptures audiences can participate in my imagination experienced. The body of work offers an in-depth reflection of my thoughts, in regard to my imagination and the thought process I go through in order to create imagery. The use of subjective text on the paintings, books and toys, I have implemented school report comments that serve as a means to challenge the way personality and imagination can be perceived.
