I use different mediums, such as oils, acrylics, and pastels to paint or draw. Printmaking is another of my passion, also, create objects of art. I believe that working in different medium and categories allow me express my feelings and thoughts better and are beneficial for my artistic process. Each idea manifests in its own individual style.
"Untrue belief -Oversimplifications" is a new body of work that explore stereotypes, the human perceptions. What divides people and creates an image based on characteristics of race, ethnicity, gender or physical appearance. My work seeks to exam stereotype through its images allowing the viewer awareness of both self-perception and the roots of stereotype in a social setting.
