The nature of my work is autobiographical. I address my history, dreams, pain, joy, needs and regrets, creating compositions that oscillate between control and chaos, reflecting my process as an individual navigating opposing influences.
I consistently use materials and surfaces that elicit the viewer's response. By doing so, I invite the audience to partake in my inner experience.
My pieces often combine loud colors and contrasting shapes that create a tension and a provocative dynamic.

SIREN Baroque kicks off its third season with Fyer, Fyer!, the first of four concerts exploring the ancient elements, in a special collaboration with the innovative baroque dancers Laura Careless and Marisol Cabrera. The program features blazingly passionate works by Morley, Monteverdi, Rebel, Scarlatti, and Handel, all of which use fire as a metaphor for nature’s wrath, spiritual zeal, lustful ardor, or the terrors of hell. With SIREN Baroque’s “impassioned performances” (Early Music America) accompanied by strikingly seductive choreography, it promises to be an evening to ignite the senses.
