Q: Tell us about yourself.
Q: What differentiates you and your work from others?
I’m very flexible and adaptable. There are times I wish I could say that I’m a master at one medium or technique, but I get bored easily and am scared to settle. It sometimes makes me feel frustrated and uncomfortable to be an alien, but I enjoy being stretched and bent with some stress. The stress of adopting or fitting into new environments sometimes translates into inspiration. Exploring new materials to express myself allows me to overcome my fear of being a stranger. For that reason, a lot of times my content and materials are influenced by what is available. Like making a boat and sailing in Tiber river in Rome out of water bottles and beer crates that tourists left on the street. I’m always up for using anything and everything that’s out there to create the story that I want to portray.
