The artist has built a body of work unrestricted by medium or scale, though always within the context of personal mythology. Using a vocabulary that spans from revelevant media imagery to late 18th-century classical symbolism, the artist layers works with esoteric fables replete with psychological meddlings. Based around legends both lived and heard, the works are They are artifacts of personal dreams and adventures, an often sensual symbiosis with hints of more great tales and legends to come.
