Once upon a time...

Human beings are story tellers.

 
My work draws on narratives found in folk and fairy tales with a focus on themes of individual transformation, metamorphosis and the idea of becoming. Rich in archetypes and symbology, these seemingly simple stories are constantly retold, renewed and analysed to suit our times and to reflect our way of seeing the world. Every generation finds its own way to re-imagine the core stories of our folk traditions. It is this process of reinvention and renewal that captures my fascination with the folk and fairytale realm.
