Artist Statement

Some days she can hardly wait for it to get dark, when her being contained in an inch flashes to become infinite. She conquers the darkness and feels herself as femme fatale releasing her power, full of grace, full of fear.

My artwork is an exercise of surrender that accepts what the ink has to say for itself and the way that marks and textures contain it.

In each print I celebrate the female body and the symbols that represent it.

The paper becomes light and the lightning bug my voice.
