ARTIST STATEMENT

  • “My filter tends to be cut ups of what is around me blurred into my own feelings and interests of the Victorian era.”

    On ideas: “I try to get out and about, especially new places to let the environment inspire me. I start an illustration of a building I see and then the elements of different characters will populate in my mind like a set and actors on a stage. If nothing comes up I continue to draw until something unfolds.”
