Biography

Through this body of work, I try to reflect on the path I must travel from chaos to order, in search for the equilibrium in my life.

Working with soil is an act full of symbolism and meaning. Soil stores memories, it gives me a sense of identity and belonging.

Through soil, as a metaphor of the substance we human were created from, I try to understand the meaning of my existence.
