This art was inspired by a love of old photographs, wax museums, and fairy tales, along with a lifelong devotion to drawing. I use original, altered, and imagined images in my artwork to invoke an eerie or uncertain vibe. The subjects in my work are often demanding you to attempt to understand their troubled circumstances. I combine these images with a scratchboard technique, which forces the white lines to creep out of the black background to reveal ominous works of art.
