“My work is informed by my personal experiences of bi-cultural upbringing and immigration. As a young woman, I became very sensitive to the behaviors that define Womanhood in the cultures in which I was raised. This generated an internal process of transplantation and adaptation that leads me to interpret natural elements, and manipulate them into the material and the space, until they become a metaphor for the internal human conflict between instinctual and nurtured behavior. In nature, I am particularly inspired by the resilience and adaptability of invasive species to thrive and create community around a vast variety of host structures. This influences my site specific installations of multiples in repetition.”
