“My paintings are about transformation, hybridity, and magic. I draw inspiration from dreams, moments of confusion and the juxtaposition of the modern human with ancient spirituality.
The figures in my work act as guides, rooted in Native American stories and culture. The Crow and Raven represent transformative energy. They bring healing and are exposers of truth.
I wish to create images that evoke primal memory and disorient the ego.”
