My work investigates the way in which narratives are built. I work in series; my drawings complete each other in a non-linear account of an imagined place. My images utilize a compositional structure such as inverted point of view, as well as defiance of scale, proportions and time. In this way, the work challenges the unity of time by showing several moments at once. I reveal the interior and exterior of both man-made and natural environments. Mountains, rivers, cages, or bridges become the manufactured stages on which complex narratives play out.
