I am fascinated by the paradoxes of life versus death, purity versus profanity, “good” versus “evil”, and light versus dark, since one cannot exist without the other. I am intrigued by “right” versus “righteousness”, faith, and the lack thereof. I am also intrigued, being a woman in a patriarchal society by how easily and unconsciously, women subjugate themselves in so many ways, without ever knowing it. In the face of all these tangibles and intangibles, I have the ability to make women remember they are beautiful, and to connect with others on an emotional and spiritual level with my work. These are gifts that often make the questions I ask myself irrelevant, for which I am grateful.
