Artist Statement:
My drawings reveal a world where larger-than-life bacteria roam, neighborhoods blend into graveyards and repeating structures unravel or contribute to a growing mass.
Together, my work narrates a roller coaster of experiences and observations, from slums and palaces to personified food.
Narrative figures are often located in trap door situations yet are oblivious to their uncertain outcomes, creating sensations of calmness in the midst of calamity and perseverance despite unmanageable odds.
