Papayapie was launched in 2005 with the intention of exploring new ways of highlighting and dramatising the natural silhouette of the body using accessories and costumes.
My passion for storytelling is combined with complex textile arrangements to create costumes inspired by grotesque creatures, and the beauty within nature. My photography express the affection for tales and myths, with references to a feminine world that becomes a protective deity of underwater creatures. Coral bleaching has been a central theme in my recent work and at the heart lies the focus of creating awareness on what is happening to our world’s oceans, in particular to corals.
Balancing the absurd with the deepest depths, the whimsical with the emotional her marine inspired anthropomorphic creatures, wish to bring into questions the relationship between humans and nature.
“When we see ourselves as part of nature, we understand that saving nature is really about saving ourselves.”
