My practice explores identity, migration and being through painting. My portraits are a celebration of unvoiced complexities behind our experiences, surroundings and relationships. Process is a key component in my work, as I reference images and bind them to form a narrative, while the paint acts as a guide. Through being playful and light-hearted with social constructs, I attempt to tap into familiar fluctuations of being a person. Paper and oil paint are the core of my practice, as these materials offer room for learning and experimentation, as well as constraint.
