I am an artist who explores the concept of ugliness and beauty. My artworks are the representation of my diverse emotions and the concept of a non stereotypical beauty. My art practice includes paintings, ceramic objects, illustrations and art direction. I work in a mixed media technique, which includes acrylic, pastels, tape , oil sticks on canvas or paper. I practise layering different colours and textures to create a unique face or to show a diverse beauty of a female body. I want to show the beauty of diversity of people, faces,  postures, feelings in my paintings.  During the creative process I usually work straight on a final piece, where I put all of my energy and movement in it. When I work in my studio, I feel emotionally powered and all of my paintings have the same spirit. I want people to feel and experience something unique or weird while looking at my art. I started my research on ugliness back in 2015, during my dissertation at the University of the Arts London. Time is an enemy of a beauty but a friend of ugliness.
