She draws inspiration from dreams, emotions, and personal experiences that illustrate the darker side of her mind and the complexity of the feminine psyche.

CJM Scholarship Film: TIDES
Tides is a film about the relationship between light and dark within us all. It is about the person behind the smile, the exhaustion of pretending, and how it is sometimes needed to give in to our darker tendencies in order to survive. ‘Tides’ plays with the relationship between cycles of the moon and cycles of being. In the end, a new phase emerges.
