2011-2015
Work from this time period explores hybrid drawing methods via the deconstruction of fairy tales, myths, folklore, and popular media. My work blends hand-drawn elements with found images from catalogues, coloring books, children's books, and blurred or partially revealed images that waiver between figuration and abstraction.

I combine traditional and digital techniques of fragmentation, alteration and re-contextualization to encourage an interchangeable narrative. Exploration, play, coincidence, and discovering relationships by chance are important components in my process.
