My work has always been influenced by folklore and fairytales. The seeds were sown at an early age by my maternal grandmother, who would often forewarn us with tales of doom. We were told to never do our laundry on New Years Day or to give gloves as a gift. To this day, I never dare to do either for fear of the consequences.
However, she did set something in motion, which was to instill a love of stories and myths in me which I continue to explore. My work sometimes strays from this theme, but I usually find myself drawn back to the forest.
