Artist Statement

In my collages and self-portraits I capture the beauty and ugliness, doubts and power, darkness and innocence of motherhood.

By making portraits I express the lived experiences of being a mother. I’m moved by the way mothers from all over the world experience, express, empower and learn from their mothering.

I explore and research themes as pregnancy & birthing, body politics & sexuality, social reproduction & unpaid labour, and the domestic within a social, cultural and intersectional perspective. This in-depth perspective is necessary to acknowledge, subvert and dismantle oppressive power structures mothers (may) experience. With my art I aim for agency of mothers on mothering their children.
