'This series delves into self-discovery experiences and key moments within intimate relationships, focusing on transformative moments through physical contact.
I experienced many of these moments throughout the COVID lockdowns when physical touch and connection became more vital than ever.'
'Although the moments were deep and intimate, they lacked the balance of day-to-day normality.
I am grateful for this experience and the memorability of each moment. The series marks a period of time that was incredibly fulfilling yet also lonely and isolating. Documenting these experiences has been cathartic and has changed how I perceive and navigate future connections.
Although this series covers a specific period within a particular relationship, I see it as an ongoing project that documents future relationships and encompasses sculpture and motion design.'
