My work evokes a place between the subconscious and the intangible. My masked figures are hybrid creatures, mistresses of ambiguity and disguise, of seduction and deception. These images like dreams are familiar but illusive. Dreams compress and heighten reality. They may bring delightful fantasy or feverish fear, fusion of overlaying images reflects desire, anxiety and the poetic lure of many inner worlds. Fairy tales, childhood games and masks, hallucinations, ghosts, insects, animals, bones and worms, are images in a passageway between what is dreamt what is lived, what is remembered and what is to come.
