Once upon a time there lived a little girl whose whole world took place in fairy tales. Fantastical creatures surrounded her and the dancing shadows of trees whispered whimsical stories that wove in her mind, blurring the lines between dream and reality.
As I grew up, my childhood world infused into my art. I love to create worlds and stories behind my art that are surreal, quirky, and darkly comedic; my background in film infuses my work with a spirit of theatricality and whimsy.
I draw inspiration from natural science, wildlife, tall tales, fables, vivid dreams, mythology, oddities, raucous celebrations, and well-designed spaces. I embrace a mindset of: if we look at the world through a child’s perspective, all things remain magical, full of awe and wonderment.
