Where my real life anxieties, phobias, and compulsions are acted out in dream scenarios is where I find my muse. Inspired by the theories of Carl Jung, I search for personal, archetypal images in my own dreams, and explore their potential meaning through drawing. I believe the frailty displayed by my “characters” is at the core of that meaning.
On a formal level, I have borrowed heavily from Chinese landscape painting, Indian miniatures, Bosch, outsider art, and cartoons of every kind. I try to communicate multiple viewpoints and time collapse through the arrangement of visual elements, and the use of opposing perspectives on the same plane.
