About

I have always been fascinated with storytelling, starting with childhood bedside fables and mythology.  Two years ago, seeking a new challenge, I undertook creating a narrative arc within a static medium, using principles I learned from my previous industries: fashion and film.  

My mission is to bring back our childhood imaginations that are drowned out by the everyday bustle in our ever-busy lives.  I choose my settings and subject material to draw the viewer back to the folk lore and myths of their youth, hoping to create artwork that inspires the dreamer within.
