I was raised on a rich diet of German fairy tales or Mårchen. These stories have informed much of my artwork in the past, and I credit the shadowy and fantastical content with the darkness in my own work. Several motifs are central to my work involving Mårchen, including adventures in the dark forest, children, flora and fauna. These motifs are omnipresent in Mårchen, and provide the characters and context in which the drama unfolds.
