I want to create worlds where both the landscape and the figure set a mood and communicate an ever -present hidden violence. I am interested in the history and process of storytelling as a means to communicate convictions and happenings in a way that slowly and subtly reveals secrets about human relationships and the lack there of. In all of my stories there is both an underlying irreverence to tradition and a sense of mystery.“
