"I create my pieces because I am on a healing journey. By stitching new stories on long lost forgotten photographs, I found my voice and discovered how to use my own power to overcome trauma and take better care of myself. This is something that only I can do; I may not have chosen to experience trauma throughout my life but I now have the choice, the power and the responsibility to heal myself and forgive what happened in my past. I am passionate about things that take strength from their own fragility; the understanding that what society usually considers as a fragility is in fact the quite opposite intrigues me greatly. Portraits showing vulnerability, tenderness and affection are my favorite ones to work with. Embroidering photographs might seem subtle and delicate, however, to me, it is a powerful and healing practice. I am poking holes and suturing through forgotten memories, an act that cannot be undone."
