I've always been attracted to drawing as a way of creating and manipulating interesting forms, which has come from a lifelong love of faces in all their endless variety. In my work, facial expressions, forms and lines interact to create self-contained systems of movement. This often makes for schematic images that seem to be in precarious positions between reality and abstraction, and provides me with room to experiment with a variety of ways of employing empty space. I’m greatly influenced by horror and science fiction, especially in mid-century film and television, and I've come to love how the imagery in these genres explores uncertainty and anxiety.
