few things about me

Sculpture2 Sculpture3

Most of my works are inspired by the turmoil of our times. As an artist I have used different techniques and materials to bring my ideas to life (silkscreen print-serigraph,fibre art design and experiments with fabric, threads, stitch, paint, text, wax and unusual mixed media materials) Also, working on used subway tickets from 1995 give me a new way of dialog with other people and I also love to involve  them  in different art projects I have initiated.
