As the artist behind the works on these walls, I strive to capture the beauty of nature and the reality of life and death in my pieces. The Butterflies and Dragonflies II collection explores the jungle that exists all around us, with color and shape conveying both the vibrancy of life and the inevitability of death. My latest project takes this one step further, creating interactive 2D and 3D silk dresses that are brought to life through AR technology. By using digital mixed media with photographs and paintings, I hope to provide viewers with a 3D virtual experience that showcases the wonder and magic of the natural world. Whether through depictions of hummingbirds or other living creatures, my goal is to inspire a sense of wonder and appreciation for the world around us. And with the honor of showcasing my work at the Art in Embassies program, I hope to bring that message to a wider audience than ever before.
