Artist Statement

souvenir \ sü-v?-ni(?)r \ n, act of remembering: something that serves as a reminder: MOMENTO

This body of works evolves from life, like most art. Being a woman in today’s society, feeling the pressures of “the perfect”. The perfect life, the perfect body, the perfect marriage, the perfect job. Always trying to fit the mold. You will find these women cramped in these small spaces, some fragmented, and always confined in the vessels of “Souvenirs”.
