My drawings depict a vertiginous temporal reality, alternating between the dawn of a folkloric world when mythological creatures still walked amongst men, and an unknown future in which aliens have finally made contact. There is an overarching sense of fantasy, of going “There and Back Again” on an episodic quest. My drawings are about an alternate reality based on real life experiences. I would like the viewer to feel like they are walking into the secret level.
