" I see my pieces as a reflection of thoughts or images that are floating in my mind; while I picture some stories, my work emerges organically, and intuitively, and my process does not have a formal narrative. My work has a distinct atmosphere influenced by themes of mystery, magic, nostalgia and silence."
