I struggled a lot in my life to fit in. I didn't want, and didn't know how, to be quiet, to be submissive. From early on I recognised the poison of this kind of woman behaviour in elder women around me so I would always be rebellious and ‘hard’.  In my work I want to present a woman full of her own uniqueness, unapologetic and not uniformed. I want to avoid any kind of feminine box (good or bad female). I’m influenced by expansion, universe and unlimitedness, going beyond, always growing and pushing your own boundaries as a human. Being in peace within yourself and with others is my ultimate goal.  My technique is a reflection of a curious soul – I am combining different techniques in a complex digital art form, sometimes static and sometimes moving ones. In my artworks end up different images from my surroundings – as brushes, textures, objects… The main character is always a woman, hand drawn or presented from an old “woman” magazine. I want to give my characters place to just be, without shrinkingness.
