I am like a collector of curiosities, or a cultural vagrant; sometimes recycling found images like old master drawings or photographs, then adding my own obsessions or dialogue, such as Yetis, UFOs or birdlike swarms. My work may be unsettling and odd, with an irreverent nostalgia for art history. The works form clusters or concentrations on walls or off the wall. WIthin these arrangements fantasy has its space.
