Born in Varna to a Bulgarian mother and Algerian father, I was raised between France and the UK.

My work looks to document and explore spirituality, ritual practices and their connection to the natural world. I often balances symbolism and cycles within nature. Dhirk (the Islamic concept of remembrance) is a central theme within my practice. Threading itself across a range of mediums including painting, moving image, clay work and bookmaking.
