My work is very influenced by folklore and fairytales. The seeds were sown at an early age by my maternal grandmother, who loved to tell us tales of her youth. She could also pull a superstition out of thin air for almost every occasion. We were told to never do our laundry on New Years Day or to give gloves as a gift and I still daren't do either of these things for fear of the consequences.
However, she really did instill a love of stories and myths in me, which I continue to explore. My work sometimes strays from these themes, but I usually find myself drawn back to the forest.
