As an artist, I specialize in the area of drawing with concentrations in printmaking, painting, illustration and performance. Research engages a conceptual framework to inform media choices and processes, but it always begins with drawing and drawing is often the end result. 

My work challenges gender constructions and normative behavior by exploring “Performativity”, which is influenced by queer theory, feminist theory and everyday life. My work of women is in a broader sense distorted images of female sexuality imposed by societal ideals and an Italian Catholic upbringing.
