ARTIST STATEMENT

  • I am passionate about children’s literature, and illustration in general. My bookshelves are filled with picture’s books from all over the world. With my picture books project Captain Blueberry, my aim has been to explore the unseen things of the world, to bring my passion for folk tales and legend into my work, and to look at landscapes, in a whole, new, monstrous way…. and to have fun.
