It is a difficult journey when you want to be on your feet but you just can´t stand. It is a difficult path when you live so long under the ground, but your dreams die in the moment you try. It is a difficult time when you think you will be so strong, but you are as weak as you never thought. It is a difficult moment when you look around and all you have is a mess. These images were made with a lot of cicadas that I took during the summer from the trees. The cicadaseventeen years under the ground, before they rise to the surface, climb on the trees, sing, mate, shed their skin, and die.

I am an electromechanical engineer, married and a mother of three. In 2015, I began my studies in photography and realized that this was my true passion. Little by little, I left my former job to devote myself completely to photography. Now I am a fine arts photographer who uses photoshop to create the emotions I feel inside and want to share. Most of my images are self portraits because I want to make my body move as my mind imagines the subject. A lot of my work was born from the sensitivity I developed during my father´s disease.
