"Working with blown glass for the past nine years, I have been dedicated to refining my technical skills, as well as developing my sensitivity as an artist. Although grounded in functional design, my work recently evolved to explore more personal themes, as I started making unique sculptural pieces.
Focusing on an initial series referring to my childhood, I have been inspired by the notion that we often relate to memories from our youth in glamorized or distorted ways, and that objects can trigger vivid recollections of such memories. As a first introspect look, I wanted to evoke moments shared with my parents, and express the comforting power of such memories to me. To translate this seeking, I started making colorful, playful objects, such as interpretations of the clothing I remembered my mother, father and I wearing, and objects that took on metaphorical meanings for me as a child.
Today I am pursuing this approach, wanting to depict my relationship with the notion of memories, and the different emotions linked to our dealing with the past. Expressing personal content, my work has evoked personal recollections for the viewer as well. I find this interaction to be very didactic and rewarding and I feel I am just starting to explore the potential of making art relating my emotions and thoughts."
