My work involves exploring the ways in which sounds can be interpreted visually. I am interested in the relationship between sound and its visual representation, and my work is focused on creating different visual representations of sound. I also use the concept of transmediation to explore the different ways in which sound can be represented. Through experimentation with various materials, my work explores the emotional, physical, spiritual, and psychological impacts of living in our world. I incorporate my various identities, interests, and reflections on social issues in my work, using iconographic musical notations that I have developed since my youth.Download my CV
