Through my highly detailed prints and sculptures, I create visual metaphors of the discomforts of the human soul by combining the crude and the grotesque with an alluring elegance and beauty visually attainable through my attention to craftsmanship. In building fictional histories, I strive to communicate stories through images that imply, rather than explain, their content to the viewer.
