With these drawings I am loosely interested in and informed by the frontier theory paradigm: migration of the misfit, and the magic, mystery and perversity of nature. For me this perversity is closely related to the concept of the sublime and frontier theory. Iím interested in the lives of misfits affected by these conditions. I wonder what fine line separated the thoughts and actions of Henry David Thoreau and Ted Kaczynski.

I am curious about the motives and the wonder that fill people, places, and things. I like doing work about mysteries, intangibles and private spaces. At the root of my ideas is an interest in the human experience. Continually I return to these themes and how they relate to our compulsion to continue.
