"My pictorial research establishes the house as a natural setting and its clothing as a costume for contemporary existential issues. In figurative oil painting, I use art history as a research support for the connection between my collections of genuine ordinary objects from each space and the discourses developed by artists in their pictorial challenges. I create the allegory of dressing myself as a painting through these objects with pictorial potential, at the same time that they suggest analogous and pertinent discourses to the feminine. With my work, I relate the house, its spaces to the genres of painting: self-portrait/portrait; still life and landscape"
