    My studio practice starts with issues discussed in my psychoanalysis. This process is followed by writing. I am interested in exploring the ambiguity of coming to understand the self. I transfer the disclosed information from literary to plastic form as a manner of its portrayal. Ultimately these works were made inspired by my surroundings, and my experiences. I found that my most authentic self is related to knowledge and to my environment.
