My favorite thing about painting is the process. I love the feeling. The mind space that is required to really be into a painting. The process is somehow difficult and relaxing, challenging and rewarding, it boosts my confidence and humbles me all at the same time. There is no other feeling like creating a beautiful painting. It’s satisfying to experience a range of emotions in a just a couple of hours by moving paint around. Sometimes I wipe all the paint off after a day or so.  I am inspired the most by everyday things and the people around me.

The process of making art for me is an act of resistance. Painting is resisting the digital imagery of a plasticized version of reality. Painting is resisting the historical representation of femininity in the art world. Making art is enjoyable. Painting is resisting struggle and suffering of humanity.
