“I think I’m Always searching for the sublime but drawn to the grotesque. I’m fascinated by the diversity and mutability of life forms and our myriad  subgective interpretations of them. Seeing the human condition as a product of evolution, I enjoy unearthing and subverting cultural archetypes both ancient and modern that speak of our somewhat schizophrenic relationship with nature”.
