The young artist, currently studying for a Master’s Degree in Painting, is interested in the topic of memory and its alteration and unreliability. Altered Diaries is a still ongoing series of paintings and diary drawings, in which she expresses and reconstructs the images of memories. However, during the reconstruction, these memories change under the influence of society, environment or simply the passing of time.
