Artist Statement

Trying to fit in is a life-long struggle. As a female, an immigrant, someone learning to speak English and an artist, I would like to take the opportunity to express my emotions toward the themes of multiculturalism, diversity and anti-racism: screaming in silence, suffocating in responsibilities and fighting for a piece of self-respect.

Me, Myself And I is a painting about women as objects in society. The set of cosmetic standards are rather tight, but me, myself and I are dodging the criticisms and pleading for diversity.

Naked Bride is a painting about a bride, on the biggest day of her young life so far, compromising her cultural traditions but still becoming a plate served by cold eyes.
