I use a direct hand-drawn technique to address the uncanny in everyday life. The works are imbued with lively human interaction and with environments that are suggestive of an event or place, yet these are left as starting points, fragmented moments in an unending narrative. Their dislocation from a specific time or place evokes a dream-like quality, allowing the viewer to create their own associations.

In most cases, the drawings become the basis for my animations, using the same compositional and thematic elements - thus making the animation a counterpoint to the still image.
