My work combines vignettes of daily life, patterns, historic and vintage scenes, still life, and allegory evoking a graphic novel, book of hours, journal, encyclopedia, storyboard, poem or a calendar. I explore sequential variations on an idea.
I use a pictorial language where image intersects with design to create open-ended narratives with singular or groups of images, resembling a scene on a stage, a movie still or a train of thought. Contrasting thoughts and characters are paired with ornamental flourishes that are romantic, even humorous. The ordinary becomes mysterious.
