I have been photographing myself and other women since 2005 (and recently, non binary people). For 16 years I have had the opportunity to document a variety of  subjects in intimate settings, often challenging their own perception of body, empowering them and myself, changing beliefs and establishing new ones.  These images sometimes become finished paintings or a photography series, yet sometimes they are explorations and inspiration for future work, unpublished key elements for connecting future ideas. 

In the series Miniatures I paint small portraits revisiting past phases of my work, archived photoshoots, backstage photos, candid poses, or forgotten images, creating a catalog of my years documenting all these subjects.
