Statement

I work in many media, and tackle many topics related to women, women´s bodies, and the effect of publicity and the media on the self image and self worth issue of modern women. Having been an exile, I am very aware of the identithy crisis that displacement brings, and relate those issues to being a woman, living in modern society, and facing multiculturalism and globalization.
