Material and digital media constitute a visual language through which I am able to explore multiple layers of identity, whether personal, cultural or social. My art practice is informed by narrative, writing, history, embodiment, relationships between people and social or physical environments. Currently, I am developing installations using non-linear narrative across multiple media that explore themes of familial history, migration, marginality, cultural hybridity and agency. While pushing the boundaries of traditional thought and media, I am embracing the creative potential of the new.
