Artist's Statement

I am drawn to graphic media in popular culture and have particularly been inspired by character driven media – animation, graphic novels, video games and action figures. During my childhood these were my myths and legends, my parables and my icons. I draw on the visual languages of these media when I develop my work. I make work about simple things – discovery, courage, vanity, loneliness, distance, fear, joy, peace.
