I work intuitively, making the pictures I feel I need and want to make. I choose my images/words to represent a gently shifting landscape where hidden uneasiness and elusive connections lie behind apparently plain and common human interaction. I like double meanings, deceptively simple language, and visible revisions. Humor plays a role, alongside a dreamy and solitary attitude of private reflection.
