"As a key part of my practice, I'm regularly putting my girls into a variety of situations from which they need to find a way out. These experimentations are usually done through my daily doodles but sometimes I need to bring them to life in order to see how they actually tackle such life problems. For that, I use stop motion gifs made from hand-drawn individual frames. The works from the ALL BY MYSELF series are exploring ways in which the girls are solving the unusual adventures/problems/situations, whether alone, or with others, but still, BY THEMSELVES!"
