Mash has always been captivated by the ability to create a world within a canvas. She draws her inspiration from artists such as Frida Kahlo, Lee Krasner and Hannah Höch. She combines her inspiration with her own lived experiences and explores themes around death and life, the masculine and feminine, and the movement of the human body. Her preferred medium of choice is collage, particularly when she’s able to combine her photography and ink work together.
Her work has been featured in numerous art shows as well as online publications around the world. She completed a Mudhouse Art Residency program in Crete in 2019, and recently completed the Iris Artist Program and SkopArt Residency in Greece, 2022.
"Change your perspective and you can change the world."
Mash’s work is inspired by the beauty of life and death. She sees the emotional journeys of the human experience from a lens of beauty and opportunity, and attempts to challenge her audiences to view their emotions (such as joy and grief) as opportunities full of wonder, expansion, and growth.
Losing her mom at a young age was a formative experience in her life, which has allowed her to cherish and perceive life in a way that is unlike that of her peers. As a child living in an immigrant family, she strives to honour her Greek roots, her ancestors, and her loved ones – for all that they sacrificed in order for her journey to flourish – through her art. The rich culture and history of her lineage can be seen in various pieces throughout her artistic expressions.
She hopes that her work sparks a moment of joy, sadness, clarity, compassion, and wisdom.
