I am interested in work that explores the unknown, both literal and figurative. Secrets are an integral part of my work: the unopened box, the unbroken egg, the lost ritual, the illegible word, the empty cocoon.These are used to examine the intertwined relationships of light and dark, loss and hope, birth and death and rebirth again.
